This is to stop the millions of threads created that say "Futurama's coming back" and getting our hopes up again but saying the false information already proven to be a misunderstanding.
As much as I want a new season of Futurama, it is not going to happen yet.
Four direct to dvd movies of Futurama are being made, the first hopefully coming out in Xmas 2007 so we'll at least still have new Futurama. [Update: Now February 24th 2009 and the final movie was released today]. The movies can be discussed in the following threads:
In 2008 and 2009, the movies will air on Comedy Central as sixteen separate episodes. These are not new episodes, just parts 1-4 of each movie. They are not a part of a new season, and thus will not be included in the guide, but reviews and comments can be made in the appropriate discussion threads.
Thirteen episodes were rumoured to come out and articles jumped all over the place, getting all our hopes up. Unfortunately, this was cast misunderstandings and they didn't realise that they were just the movie episodes and there was 16. Matt Groening and David X Cohen confirmed these were false but I urge everyone to buy the movies/watch the episodes because if they're popular enough another season may come in 2009 or 2010 which is a long wait.
It is now looking unlikely that a new season will be made, but the four movies that were made as part of resurrecting the show briefly with new material have been released and those who have watched, can now choose their favourite in the new poll.
Any comments, ideas, questions or news about the movies or anything else Futurama-related can be discussed here.
