'Planet Express' is re-opening for business!

20th Television Animation has announced they’re reviving ‘Futurama’ for a 20-episode season due for release next year. 

Whether you were a fan or not, the series was pretty iconic and soon you'll be able to see more brand-new episodes.

After a nine-year hiatus, the Matt Groening created show will be making a comeback to television sets all over the world.

The revival will be the second time the sci-fi series has been brought back from the dead, originally running between 1993 and 2002 before getting resurrected in 2007 (and subsequently cancelled in 2013).

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

‘Futurama’ is set to start production later this month as it eyes a 2023 release on Disney+ in Aotearoa.
