New Futurama Episodes Coming in June

We rejoiced when we heard that Futurama might come back to TV, but now we know for sure, and we’ve got a date: Comedy Central will air the first of 26 new episodes of Matt Groening‘s sci-fi cult hit in June.

HitFix reports:

Comedy Central sources confirm to HitFix that Thursday, June 24 at 10:00 p.m. is currently set to be the premiere of the first new half-hour episode of “Futurama”since 2003.

At this point, it’s obligatory to say that we hope the new episodes will be better than the well-intentioned but shakily executed Futurama DVD movies that have come out since the series was canceled in ’03. Well: we hope the new episodes will be better than the well-intentioned but shakily executed Futurama DVD movies that have come out since the series was canceled in ’03. Really: we hope they’re directed by Harold Zoid, but not everyone can achieve their lifelong dreams.

Hypnotoad commands you to check it out. All glory to Hypnotoad.
