First trailer for the new ‘Futurama’ season drops, release date also announced

Good news everyone!

After a ten-year absence, the beloved animated sci-fi comedy TV show ‘Futurama’ has returned with a trailer and a release date for the next season. 

Fry, Bender, Leela, and the rest of the Planetary Express crew will have their latest season of adventures streamed on Hulu come July 24th.

Hulu dropped an official new trailer earlier today and the show, as it always has, will be satirising many facets of modern-day life. Cryptocurrency, the pandemic, artificial intelligence, and more will be plot points in the latest season of Matt Groening’s show, which will span ten episodes. 

Here’s the official synopsis for season 11 of ‘Futurama’: “After a brief ten-year hiatus, Futurama has crawled triumphantly from the cryogenic tube, its full original cast and satirical spirit intact.”

“The 10 all-new episodes of season 11 have something for everyone. New viewers will be able to pick up the series from here, while long-time fans will recognize payoffs to decades-long mysteries – including developments in the epic love story of Fry and Leela, the mysterious contents of Nibbler’s litter box, the secret history of evil Robot Santa, and the whereabouts of Kif and Amy’s tadpoles."

“Meanwhile there’s a whole new pandemic in town as the crew explores the future of vaccines, bitcoin, cancel culture, and streaming TV.”

Futurama’s latest revival was first announced in February of 2022. It’s the second time the show has been cancelled and brought back, having been dropped from Fox after its first four seasons aired on the network before not being renewed in 2003. 

Comedy Central then picked it back up in 2010 only to drop it in 2013. 

When announcing this latest revival, Groening said he’s looking forward to getting the chop again. 

“It’s a true honour to announce the triumphant return of 'Futurama' one more time before we get cancelled abruptly again.”

In a world where loads of media have undeserved remakes or sequels, I’m more than happy this show is coming back. Definitely underrated among its animated counterparts ‘South Park’, ‘Family Guy’ and ‘The Simpsons’.
