Futurama is back, with a twist. The cancelled animated series has been revived in podcast form. Per Deadline:
Futurama creator Matt Groening and the original cast of the bygone television animated series have returned in a 42-minute podcast episode available at various online sites.
Created as part of the Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow mobile game, the episode was helmed by Groening, series head writer and executive producer David X. Cohen, and the original team of writers. The new episode features the voices of the original cast and is now live at nerdist.com, soundcloud.com, and at Spotify, where it can be downloaded and listened to for free.
Futurama originally survived from 1999 to 2003 on FOX, before being revived in 2007 as four direct-to-video films, which aired on Comedy Central as 16 half-hour episodes, serving as the fifth season. The cabler then revived the series for a 26-episode sixth season, before it was finally cancelled after seven seasons in 2013.
