Fox is set to bring the geek classic Futurama back to TV. They have signed-on for 26 new episodes that should begin airing in mid 2010.
Apparently Fox hit a wall negotiating with the original voice actors, and have putout a casting call for replacements.
I’ve gotten emails from quite a few people about this one. The people I’ve spoken to about the prospect of Futurama without Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche and Tress MacNeille seem pretty angry.
I can’t say that I am thrilled about the idea, and I love Futurama.
However, something tells me Fox will work things out with the employees of Planet Express.
