â13 new episodes have been ordered with an additional 13 optional,â? he said, speaking to Big Shiny Robot. âThis is apart from the 13 episodes that will air beginning in June 2011 on Comedy Central.â?
âThey 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 â despite never officially cancelling it. But it was brought back in 2010 by Comedy Central, and long may it remain.
