Daenerys Loves Dr. Zoidberg? Emilia Clarke Set To Voice Futurama Character During Final Season.


Just because Futurama was cancelled again (sad trombone) doesn’t mean the creators are done having fun. The upcoming season will feature everyone’s favorite Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, in a very special guest-starring role. 

Season 7 of Futurama will return to wrap its run June 19th, but fans can enjoy a few more surprises along the way. Entertainment Weekly says Clarke, best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryan on HBO’s Game of Thrones, will have a role in the second-to-last episode of the series. But what will that involve exactly? EW writes:

Clarke will guest star on the animated 31st-century-set comedy as a flower stand owner who, ironically enough, was born with no sense of smell. “She falls in love with Dr. Zoidberg — the smelliest character on Earth in the future — but she can’t smell him, so it’s a match made in heaven,” explains series executive producer David X. Cohen. “However, being a doctor, he has the opportunity to perform a nose transplant and give her a sense of smell, which would destroy their romance, so it’s a big dilemma.”

A far cry from Khaleesi, indeed.

Futurama is set to wrap its run September 4 on the Comedy Central.
