As Comedy Central prepares to launch the final (ish) season of 'Futurama' on June 19, we've learned another animated series of the cable network has officially gone gently into that good night. After two seasons, the animated horror-comedy 'Ugly Americans' has officially closed up shop, but will producers find another avenue with which to continue the series, like 'Futurama' before it?
'Futurama' fans recently had their hearts broken once more to learn that the series would come to a (likely) definitive end after its next 13 episodes, but if nothing else, the beloved sci-fi animated series will certainly go out with a bang. New reports claim 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke will lend her fiery tongue to one of the final 'Futurama' episodes, but who will the Mother of Dragons have her animated eyes on this summer?
Bad news, everyone! After enjoying a two-season comeback and a series of DVD movies, it seems 'Futurama' will once again retire the Planet Express ship, ending its revived run on Comedy Central after the next 13 episodes. The comedy network officially opted not to renew past a seventh season, but is 'Futurama' really gone for good this time? Might producers find yet another avenue to continue?
Not enough people attempt to cosplay Leela from 'Futurama,' and we can understand why -- this female hero only has one eye, and that's not easy to pull off. But this cosplayer didn't even bat an eye when it came to imitating the cartoon favorite.
Good news, everyone! Come on, you knew that was coming. In any case, it's been a good long while since we've had any fresh 'Futurama' to go on, but the Planet Express crew will soon be back, baby! It remains to be seen if an eighth season of the sci-fi funnies series will be produced on Comedy Central, but the back half of season 7 will hit this summer with 13 all-new episodes, the first of which are previewed in a new full-length trailer! Get the latest look at 'Futurama' inside!
There are some out there who think TV host Larry King is too smart for his own good, and just as many who believe everything that comes out of his mouth is pure insanity. So, when you combine these two images, you get the real-life incarnation of the irrevocably senile, totally wrinkled and insanely smart Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth from 'Futurama.'
As much as we like a good 'Supernatural' blast from the past, a trip to the future can be even more fun. So for as many 'Supernatural' allies have come to aid the Winchester bros. over the last seven years, few have been as well received as DJ Qualls' eccentric hunter Garth, confirmed to be back (presumably with his puppet) next season! But what new 'Futurama' face (or voice) will join the crew as well, and who will they play?
We're only 49 days away from the premiere of all-new 'Futurama' on Comedy Central. How do we know that? Why, because the network yesterday began its special 50-day countdown to the season 7 premiere on Thursday, June 20, and every day serves up a new look, clip, or artwork to keep 'Futurama' fans going faster than the speed of light? So what's first up?
