After seven seasons, multiple cancellations, a few Direct to Video movies, and a channel change or three; Futurama is ending. Entertainment Weekly broke the news yesterday that the beloved animated series will end September 4th, 2013.
The series, which began on FOX in 1999 will finish with 140 episodes. The final 13 episodes, the second half of season 7, begin on Comedy Central on June 19th.
Producer David X. Cohen spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the end of the series.
“I felt like we were already in the bonus round on these last couple of seasons, so I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” Cohen told EW. “It was what I had expected two years earlier. At this point I keep a suitcase by my office door so I can be cancelled at a moment’s notice.”
Do you think this is really the end for Fry and Bender Maniacs? The show has ended and come back before.
