Futurama has been renewed for a 20-episode run on Hulu, the third platform for the animated comedy from creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen.
The sitcom, which aired its initial five seasons on Fox before being renewed for three more seasons on Comedy Central, will go into production this month for a 2023 premiere. Following a lengthy period of negotiations, original performers Billy West (Fry) and Katey Sagal (Leela), as well as ensemble players who voiced several roles Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman, will all return. John DiMaggio, who gave the voice for the robot Bender, is nearing the completion of a contract to return as well, though it has not yet been finalized.
Futurama, about a pizza delivery guy who mistakenly freezes himself in 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later, won six Emmys, including two for best animated program, seven Annie Awards, and a pair of WGA awards during its original run.
