In case you haven't heard, Comedy Central has ordered 26 brand new episodes of Futurama. New episodes will start airing next year.
Furturama has been my favorite cartoon series for years. It is more cohesive than Family Guy and a little more mature than the Simpsons (although both of those are great in their own right).
For years, I have been disturbed that Futurama was cancelled while King of the Hill continued. KotH is OK, but it is not the brilliance of Futurama...no Owl Traps, no Suicide Booths, no Bachelor Chow, no human hating robots, no always hungry crablike doctors. KotH just couldn't compete and yet somehow it did.
