As of the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, "Futurama" went off the air with its series finale, and won't ever return again. Well, it is the latest series finale that may mean it won't ever return, but no-one is ever really sure about "Futurama" so says Yahoo News.
The series had new life breathed into it three years ago when Comedy Central brought it into its line-up, but it just didn't seem that it was meant to last. Sadly, the series finale may end up being the complete end for the series.
Executive producer and "Futurama" co-creator David X. Cohen spoke with TV Guide recently said that this time could really show the official end of the series. Direct-to-video movies could happen, but the future as a series may not exist.
"Part of it is that the episode is so satisfying to me. It almost feels like we’d be wasting it if we came back again… But on the other hand, I’m reminded that I did say that with full conviction at least twice before, so people don’t seem to believe me. My opinion has been shown to be not of much value in predicting the future on this one subject."
Developed by Cohen and Matt Groening of "The Simpsons," "Futurama" started back in 1999 and saw Fox cancel it in 2003. Reruns would air on various networks for years until Comedy Central picked it up in 2010.
While there already have been some "Futurama" direct-to-video movies, there could be more on the way. That is what fans will have to look forward to because the series may officially be done...or maybe, it isn't.
