yes futurama's coming back:
from:Originally Posted by wikiAfter the successful revival of the Family Guy series, 20th Century Fox Television approached Futurama co-creator Matt Groening to produce a direct-to-DVD Futurama movie. On April 26, 2006, Groening noted in an interview that co-creator David X. Cohen and numerous writers from the original series would be returning to work on the movies. On June 22, 2006, Comedy Central announced that at least 13 new episodes were to be produced. Comedy Central also confirmed that Billy West, Katey Sagal, and John DiMaggio would return for the new episodes, with a 2008 debut planned. According to an interview with Cohen, as of December 2006 the Futurama team were around half way through writing the new season, and Rough Draft Studios had just started animating.
The first movie, Futurama: Bender's Big Score is written by Ken Keeler and Cohen, and will include return appearances by the Nibblonians, Seymour, Barbados Slim, Morbo, Robot Santa, the "God" space entity, Al Gore, and Zapp Brannigan. In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Al Gore confirmed that he would appear as his disembodied head. Cohen has said that Gore would be involved in a storyline which will "show what really determined the outcome of the 2000 Presidential election".
In February 2007, Groening clarified speculation as to whether Futurama had been revived in episodic or feature-film form, saying "[The crew is] writing them as movies and then we're going to chop them up, reconfigure them, write new material and try to make them work as separate episodes." According to Rich Moore the titles of the other three movies are Futurama: The Beast with a Million Backs, Futurama: Bender's Game, and Futurama: The Wild Green Yonder.
A trailer was shown at the 2007 Comic-Con International convention in San Diego on July 28, 2007. A 5-minute trailer was shown to the audience of more than 4,000. All original voice actors still take part in the series, and it will be in widescreen format when released on DVD. After the trailer was shown the panel, including Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche, and Matt Groening, answered questions from the audience. Apparently they are working on 4 DVDs to be split into 16 episodes that will air on Comedy Central in 2008.
Futurama: Bender's Big Score will be released on DVD November 27th, 2007. It will be shot in wide screen and also released on Hi-Def DVD (No word on which format).
