Will someone give this show a chance? Somebody? Anybody?
Comedy Central has revealed today that they’ve decided to not renew Futurama for another season, effectively cancelling the show. The show is no stranger to rejection, as showrunner David X. Cohen has been ready for the inevitable many times now, planning the past few seasons of the show (and even the movies) in such a way to act as a series finale in its uncertain future.
Thankfully, for fans, Futurama still has 13 episodes to go in this season, which Cohen has stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly would be their “best last season ever.
As for the show’s return on another network, I believe Connie Francis said it best:
If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
