Find Out Which Show Was Cancelled!

by Kristen Flowers

"Futurama" has been canceled . . . AGAIN.  Comedy Central has announced that they're NOT renewing it for an eighth season, so the current season is its last.

The second half of Season Seven premieres June 19th.  There will be 13 more episodes before the series finale on September 4th.

Fox originally canceled "Futurama" in 2003 after a four-season run.  Comedy Central brought it back in 2007, with four direct-to-DVD movies that later became its fifth season.  Since then, they've aired two additional seasons.

The show's creator Matt Groening is hinting that this might NOT be the end.  He says, quote, "We've been in this situation before and it's tempting when you're doing episodes that are as good, or better, than anything you've ever done to continue doing it.

"It'd be a shame if we all went our separate ways . . . we would love to continue.  We have many more stories to tell.  But if we don't, this is a really great way to go out . . . I think these episodes are the best ones we've ever done."
