Futurama Season 11 gets Premiere Date

Exciting news, folks! The long-awaited revival of Futurama is just around the corner. After a decade and a dispute over pay with John DiMaggio, Hulu has officially announced the return of the beloved series. Get ready to join the Planet Express Crew and the eccentric residents of New New York as they make their way back to your television screens on July 24th. Subsequent episodes will be released every Monday, ensuring a weekly dose of futuristic fun. But wait, there’s more! The premiere date was revealed through a teaser that sets the stage for the wild adventures ahead, featuring fan-favorite characters like Robot Santa, Zapp Branigan, Calculon, Mom, and many others.

In this concise yet tantalizing teaser, viewers are transported to the year 3023 for a glimpse of what to expect in the upcoming eleventh season. Following a brief hiatus after the series finale, which saw Fry and Leela embarking on another journey after living in suspended animation, fans were left pondering how the revival would pick up the story from where the space-faring lovebirds left off. With a fresh order of 20 episodes, Season 11 will finally unravel the mysteries and unresolved plotlines from the show’s original run. Brace yourself for new twists and turns in Fry and Leela’s relationship, the revelation of Nibbler’s litter box contents, the secret history of Robot Santa, and updates on Kif and Amy’s tadpoles. Moreover, expect the show to tackle modern-day satire with its trademark wit, taking aim at topics such as the pandemic, cancel culture, vaccines, BitCoin, and streaming television.

For the uninitiated, Futurama follows the adventures of Phillip J. Fry, a pizza delivery boy from the 20th century who finds himself cryogenically frozen for a thousand years, awakening in the year 3000. As the ultimate fish out of water, Fry, accompanied by his crude yet endearing robot buddy Bender and his one-eyed love interest, Turanga Leela, embarks on delivery missions for Planet Express. They are joined by a colorful cast, including Fry’s 160-year-old relative and the founder of Planet Express, Professor Hubert Farnsworth, the brilliant yet slightly ditzy Amy Wong, the meticulous accountant Hermes Conrad, and the alien lobster doctor, Dr. John Zoidberg. Together, they traverse the cosmos, inevitably finding themselves in all sorts of predicaments. Combining heartwarming moments with side-splitting humor, Futurama captivated audiences during its original run on Fox and its subsequent revival on Comedy Central.

The stellar voice cast of Futurama is back, led by Billy West and Katey Sagal reprising their roles as Fry and Leela. West’s talent extends beyond Fry, as he also voices Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, and numerous other characters from across the universe. The cast is further enriched by the exceptional skills of DiMaggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman. Season 11 will also include a posthumous voice performance by rapper Coolio, who returned as Kwanzaabot before his passing.

The revival brings back the creative duo behind the series, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, who serve as directors for multiple episodes in Season 11. Having been showrunners and creative consultants throughout the show’s entire run, their return ensures the familiar Futurama magic. Executive producers Ken Keeler and Claudia Katz, along with the rest of the creative team, are also back on board.

If you want to catch up on Futurama before its long-awaited return on July 24, you can find it on Hulu. Don’t miss out—check out the teaser below:
