Comedy Central (ended 2013)
Exactly, wikipedia isn't a reliable news source, though in this case the info does back up our more porofessional links (rumoured a new season but has now been confirmed to be movies split into episodes)
Would someone care to explain this?(Matt Groening seems to be contradicting the nay sayers here)
It's not contradicting anything. As the other articles said, the 4 dvd movies are going to be split up and aired as 16 episodes, the episodes having extra material in them and cut out bits of continuity so they air as separate episodes, and that's what Groening is working on. Besides, he said the same thing in the earlier article (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/news/comments/?entryid=397361
|I JUST wrote a review for "Jurasic Bark" and I was sad and said "Since it's already done, I highly suggest that Fry finally decides to clone him in one of the four Futurama movies." and then I read the article on wikipedia that said "The new season will be set two years after the events of the last season, and will re-visit Fry and Leela's relationship and unanswered questions about Nibbler, dark matter and Seymour the dog." And now I'm in a really good mood!|
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.
In 2008, the movies will air on Comedy Central as sixteen separate episodes. These are not new episodes, just parts 1-4 of each movie.
What's so hard to understand?
|"iF: Will there will be any new characters added to FUTURUAMA? |
GROENING: We’ve got a giant alien octopus that mates with every person on earth with its tentacles. And in the first movie, Sarah Silverman plays a cameo and Al Gore. Al Gore is back!"
I LOVE SARAH SILVERMAN!
