We haven’t got long before the first new episodes of Futurama in a decade premiere on Hulu. We had long assumed the show was over (and had made peace with that) but in a world of endlessly recyclable IP nothing truly dies, does it?
Fun on a bun! Hulu first announced they were producing new episodes of Futurama in February of last year. The typical incubation period for an animated series is about two years, but we suppose a lot of things were set up already, as we’ve just learned the first ten episodes will premiere in the VERY near World of Tomorrow — July 24. The episodes will be released one at a time on a weekly basis.
Fox Digital Entertainment and a German studio named “Wooga” have announced a new Futurama video game is in development…..but it’s for phones.
Either we have this wrong or Futurama just did a spoof episode of the the recent Playstation hack. In the episode we see a young boy who is modifying Bender so that he may have control over what bender does. The manufacturer that built Bender, MomCorp, don’t take this to lightly and decide to bring the boy to court. There are countless scenes that all appear to familiar with the recent playstation hack.
