Futurama is finally returning to Adult Swim

A classic sitcom returns to ADULT SWIM

In a recent tweet, Adult Swim has announced that it will begin airing FUTURAMA from the very beginning on December 27th, 2021. According to the listings, the 1st two episodes of FUTURAMA will air on the same day for fans to relive the best moments of the show once again.

Created by Matt Groening (The Simpsons), Futurama originally aired on Fox for four seasons from March 28, 1999 to Aug. 10, 2003. After being canceled by Fox due to low ratings, the fan-favorite series was revived in the form of four direct-to-DVD feature films, which were released from Nov. 27, 2007 to Feb, 24, 2009. These four movies were split up into 16 episodes, which aired on Comedy Central as Futurama Season 5 from March 23, 2008 to Aug. 30, 2009.

Accidentally frozen, pizza-deliverer Fry wakes up 1,000 years in the future. He is taken in by his sole descendant, an elderly and addled scientist who owns a small cargo delivery service. Among the other crew members are Capt. Leela, accountant Hermes, intern Amy, obnoxious robot Bender and lobsterlike moocher “Dr.” Zoidberg.
