While 'Futurama' didn't have the same scale as 'The Simpsons' and didn't quite have the same broad appeal, it was nevertheless one of the funniest animated series out there.
In fact, it may just be that the series had a much shorter run that it's garnered this status, because the show never went longer than absolutely needed. At any rate, reboots of animated series are now du jour, what with the success of Hulu's 'Animaniacs' lending itself to just about anything coming back.
In a recent interview with SyFy Wire, Maurice LeMarche - who voiced Brain in 'Animaniacs', as well as Calculon, Kif Kroker, and many others in 'Futurama' - said that the cast are still friendly, and regularly talk about coming back together for another season of the show.
'Futurama' originally began life in 2000, where it ran for four seasons before it was cancelled by Fox. However, a string of straight-to-DVD episodes and re-runs garnered the show more popularity, culminating in Comedy Central bringing the series back in 2010 for two more seasons, eventually ending the show in 2013. So, could it come back now that Fox is under Disney's flag?
"If Fox was to come up with the right offer, but I know Matt (Groening) would love to do it again. David Cohen, I think, might be into it. I think semi-retirement is finally wearing on him," said LeMarche, adding that the whole cast is into it, but it's up to the powers that be.
"It would be great to do it before Billy West (voice of Fry, Dr. Zoidberg, and Professor Farnsworth) turns 80. So hopefully someday there’ll be a 'Futurama' reboot, but we’re well-practiced at the reboot thing. We got rebooted twice, so there might be less of a huzzah about it, but it’d be nice to do that again."
With that in mind, here's cyborg Richard Nixon winning the election on the show.
