A teaser for the new season was released on Hulu’s YouTube page on May 18, 2023, that announced the premiere date for the new episodes.

Who Is Returning for the Futurama Reboot?

Great news! The original main cast of Futurama is returning once again to voice the characters. The ensemble voice cast features Billy West as Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Zap Brannigan, and Zoidberg, Katey Sagal as Leela, Tress MacNeille as “Mom”, Lauren Tom as Amy Wong, Phil LaMarr as Hermes Conrad, Maurice LaMarche as Kif, and David Herman as Scruffy.

John DiMaggio initially wasn’t going to return to voice the fan-favorite character of Bender, citing pay disputes, and believing that the entire cast deserved to be paid more. After extensive negotiations, a deal was finally made and DiMaggio officially signed on to reprise his role as Bender.

It was revealed that the late rapper Coolio, who passed away last September, reprised his role as KwanzaaBot and recorded new dialogue and music for the new season weeks before his passing.

What Is the Background of Futurama?

While working on The Simpsons, in 1997, Groening and Cohen started working on Futurama, as a companion to the already long-standing hit sitcom. Futurama first aired in March 1999 on Fox Network and ran for four seasons until 2003. In 2008, the sitcom was picked up by Comedy Central for all new episodes and ran on the network for three seasons until 2013.

To date, Futurama has aired 130 episodes of 20–30 minutes each, spread across 10 seasons and 10–12 years of its airing. Of these, two episodes, “Godfellas” from the third season and “The Prisoner of Brenda” from the sixth season became award-winning episodes. In 2014, in the sixth episode of the 26th season of The Simpsons, there was a crossover between the two popular shows, called “Simpsorama”, where “After unearthing a time capsule, the Planet Express crew travel through time to Springfield to stop the Simpson family from destroying the future.”

What Is the Story of Futurama, and What Can We Expect From the Reboot?

Futurama Reboot: Every Little Detail That we Know Of

Hulu’s official press release for the series reads:

“FUTURAMA” premiered in 1999 and quickly gained a faithful following and critical acclaim, including two primetime Emmys for Outstanding Animated Program. Despite its far-future setting, the show is renowned for its satiric commentary on life in the present. The series follows Philip J. Fry (Billy West), a New York City pizza delivery boy, who accidentally freezes himself in 1999 and gets defrosted in the year 3000. In this astonishing New New York, he befriends hard-drinking robot Bender (John DiMaggio), and falls in love with cyclops Leela (Katey Sagal). The trio find work at the Planet Express Delivery Company, founded by Fry’s doddering descendant, Professor Hubert Farnsworth. Together with accountant Hermes Conrad, assistant Amy Wong, and alien lobster Dr. John Zoidberg, they embark on thrilling adventures that take them to every corner of the universe. After its initial run on the Fox Broadcasting Network, a roller-coaster of cancellations and resurrections ensued. Four successful direct-to-DVD releases in 2007-2009 led to the show’s rebirth on Comedy Central from 2010-2013. Then, after a brief ten-year freeze in the cryogenic chamber, FUTURAMA emerged triumphantly as a streaming series for Hulu with a 20-episode order set to debut in 2023.

When he wakes up, Philip is taken in by his only descendent, an old and bumbling scientist, Professor; Capt. Leela, a tough but charming one-eyed alien; accountant Hermes; an intern named Amy; an obnoxious robot named Bender, and a lobster-like freeloader named Dr. Zoidberg.

Although Futurama is returning after a decade, it’s technically a new season. And in some ways, the final episode of the last season that aired in 2013 seems like a good starting point for the upcoming episodes to pick up. The last season ended with Fry and Leela getting old together and living a happy life but planning to set out on their crazy adventures once again, but the Professor builds a device that sends them back in time with no memory of so far.

The official synopsis for Futurama Season 11 reads:

After a brief ten-year hiatus, Futurama has crawled triumphantly from the cryogenic tube, its full original cast and satirical spirit intact. The ten all-new episodes of season eleven have something for everyone. New viewers will be able to pick up the series from here, while long-time fans will recognize payoffs to decades-long mysteries – including developments in the epic love story of Fry and Leela, the mysterious contents of Nibbler’s litter box, the secret history of evil Robot Santa, and the whereabouts of Kif and Amy’s tadpoles. Meanwhile there’s a whole new pandemic in town as the crew explores the future of vaccines, bitcoin, cancel culture, and streaming TV.
