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 was one of the few things worth watching, sci fi, humor, a hot cyclops, goofy guy and girl stuff,, so much better than watching all the other shows which can only hold you fast in your chair by scaring the heck out of you. Terror isn't really entertainmnent,, and that's what most movies and tv are, but Futurama makes me laugh, and laughter is truly a gift from the Futurama creators, writers, etc.

    It would be a shame to stop this amazing TV show as it doesn't only have the most amazing comedy that can be achieved, but it also inspired thousands of people to ensue in science and many people including myself have developed my comedy style from this programme and the movies!

    I watched this show as my kids were growing up and I will always love it. It is colorful, it has comedy, satire, romance, history with a little politics thrown in and it isn’t vulgar or offensive to any great degree. I miss this show and I hope it returns to syndication. I bought all the series episodes and movies (got great deals on Amazon and Ebay) and even bought Fry, Leela, and the Professor bendy dolls that I have hanging around my pc desk area. I even purchased a talking Bender since they didn’t have a “bendy” Bender (there has to be some irony in that) I have never done this with any other show and I think I am in love with it… I know that I am sounding like a Trekkie and eventually I will get over my fixation but why should I have to? Kids can watch Futurama but so can adults. In fact my kids who are 28, 25, and 23 year old adults now and they still watch Futurama. Matt you hit the nail on the head and I think with the proper advertisement and maybe some help from Hypno-Toad the whole world would watch The New Futurama! Also I am kinda hot for Leela: ) Sincerely, Eric

    Bring it back,the show was great. It's a show where it can never run out of ideas and it can pull off any crazy plot cuz duh its like in space and ****. When you guys do decide to bring it back,try playing different varieties of the show instead of the same few episodes for months

    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.
  • linda schaefersCountry: usa2015-04-04 23:37:37

  • Anneliese J. SchaefersCountry: United States2015-04-04 16:16:56
    Please bring this Futurama back. It made the television worth watching. Or at least make more movies.
  • Joshua NCountry: U.S.2015-04-01 03:20:42
    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.
