Futurama Gets 7th Season

Futurama will be back for a seventh season according to voice actor Maurice LaMarche, who voices a number of characters in the show such as Kif Kroker, Calculon and Morbo.

“13 new episodes have been ordered with an additional 13 optional,â€? he said, speaking to Big Shiny Robot. “This is apart from the 13 episodes that will air beginning in June 2011 on Comedy Central.â€?

“They will air in 13 episode blocks… so that means there will be new Futurama in summer of 2012, and most probably in summer of 2013 as well.â€?

Futurama originally ran on Fox between 1999 and 2003, but Fox stopped buying episodes and let it go out of production – despite never officially cancelling it. But it was brought back in 2010 by Comedy Central, and long may it remain.
