Matt Groening of The Simpson’s futuristic comedy Futurama is getting a revival and it’s coming to Hulu. Groening will be working with another Futurama veteran David X. Cohen so fans don’t have to worry about sacrificing the show’s authenticity and originality. In addition to the original creators hopping on board to produce the revival, original cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman are all attached with the exception of John DiMaggio who has not been confirmed to appear in the project.
The original show follows Philip J. Fry (Billy West) who is cryogenically frozen and then woken up in the new millennium of the 31st century. Fry soon finds a job at an interplanetary delivery company alongside Leela (Katey Sagal) and fan favorite, Bender the robot (John DiMaggio). It’s unclear if the series’ revival will feature a similar plot but considering most of the voice cast is returning the revival will most likely follow the same characters as they get themselves in and out of new, hilarious scenarios.
