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.
