Futurama: Petition for New Space-Age Adventures

FuturamaFuturama was cancelled after four seasons on the FOX network. But, because of the popularity of the show in syndication and on DVD, the characters were revived for four made-for-DVD movies. They’ve been broken up and are currently airing as a fifth season on Comedy Central. Though the last installment provides some closure for the characters, series creator Matt Groening says the door was purposely left open for future exploits.

Would you like to see Fry and his friends return for more space-age adventures? If so, let the execs know. There are a few things you can do.

Tell your friends and family members to tune in and watch the series on Comedy Central. If that’s not possible, encourage them to watch online. Maybe one of them is secretly a “Nielsen family” or knows one.

If possible, buy the DVDs and encourage your local rental store to do the same. Disc sales were a big factor in the show being revived the first time.

Write to Fox and Comedy Central. Let them know how you feel but, keep it civil. Everyone responds best to courtesy.

Sign the petition below and let the execs know you’ve signed it. Spread the word and ask others to do the same.


To: 20th Century Fox Television, Matt Groening, and Comedy Central

We, the undersigned, have faithfully watched and enjoyed the Futurama TV show and movies. They are outrageous, irreverent, inventive, and hilarious — all of the qualities that one could want in an animated series.

We ask that you please continue producing new installments of Fry, Bender, and the rest — in made-for-DVD movies, new episodes, or better yet, both. The sales of Futurama DVDs have proven that we, as an audience, financially support this enjoyable show and are ready for more.

Please take advantage of this opportunity and produce additional installments.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Futurama needs to come back so that 13-year-olds like me can have intelligent things to watch.

    It was my Christmas Break 2015, and I just finished "The Office" and I needed something to do. I browsed Netflix and I saw a poster with a metal man smoking a cigar. That caught my interest. I watched "Space Pilot 3000". I instantly fell in love with the show's quirky gimmics, offbeat hilarity, and amazing labyrinths of foreshadowing, time paradoxes and plot twists. I honestly love the show to death. It has taught me many things, like to "accept people whether they be black, white, Klingon, or even female." Futurama is the one show that has helped me get through the hardships. The one show that makes it worth it after a long hard day. The show that made my life worth living.

    Futurama is a cultural and comedic hit that deserves the acclaim and praise of long running animated shows such as The Simpsons and Family Guy. It has proven time and time again to be in the same class as those shows and deserves the same respect and treatment. I hope you take our petition and countless arguments into consideration and put this incredible TV show back on the air in some form or fashion.

    Please bring this Futurama back. It made the television worth watching. Or at least make more movies.

    I would give anything for more episodes. I watch it every night on Netflix i've been watching it every night for years. The Futurama universe is so interesting its a billion times more interesting than the simpsons universe and there are so many more races i want to know about and more of the inventions they could keep this series going for 50 years theres an infinite amount of possiblities. Futurama opened my mind to so many new ideas and creations.I watch it when i draw and write and its inspiring and funny and intelligent i honestly have no idea how it could have gotten canceled but it must be brought back on the air immediately.

    I've been a fan of Futurama since it's inception and was sad to see it go a second time. Please bring back this awesome show that will not only increase Netflix subscribers but also make many fans and Netflix execs extremely happy. Thanks for your time.

    Bring Futurama Back
  • harleyCountry: United States2014-12-07 17:28:54
    with how stupid television is becoming and the lack of decent shows worth watching that are all overly sexualized and just flat out ridiculous, Futurama was one show that I can always say since I was a teenager up until now I have loved to watch and can count on every time to both amuse me and make me laugh until I almost pissed on myself lol. of course there should be no surprise that such a sold out network full of stupidity and trending shit like fox would cancel it because of course they have to be trendy after all fox is the gap or hot topic of the television networks. but the fact remains unchanged we still have old shows like The Simpsons that while I suppose they are good they are just way too old and overdone same with South Park same with Family Guy... Okay well actually it with Family Guy it is just at the point that it is painful to even Watch. I have to say that futurama was 1 show that has always been fresh and amusing is very unique and 1 of a kind. the fact is with this not be what we need on TV instead of recycled crap that we have all seen done so many different ways over and over? I really hope to see Futurama brought back somehow or somewhere because there really is nothing good besides Futurama is far as funny shows are concerned unless we just need to be more tortured with ridiculous shows like previously said ones lol after all Fox only uses and heirs what brings them their precious attention but we all know what good shows are and the fact is that there's not many left at all.
  • Squiint27Country: United States 2014-12-01 00:25:59
    Bring it back!
  • JakeCountry: USA2014-11-30 20:12:38
    After a hard day of work that is both physically and mentally exhausting, there is no other show that can put a smile on my face. I keep going to Family Guy and Simpsons but always end up back with Futurama streaming on Netflix. When I finish all the seasons, you guessed it REPLAY!. I would love to see new episodes on the air so I dont have to keep replaying the same one over and over. I know I dont speak for myself when I say PLEASE BRING FUTURAMA BACK!!!!
