comedy central gave futurama new life since the dvd movies, but in the last season, the viewers and discs sales where not enough. according to ericrogers, futurama head writer, it is well known that futurama is very expensive to produce.. so that pulled the plug.
david x cohen and matt groening are waiting to see if any other network or alternative can keep the series alive (fans are talking even of kickstarter or internet broadcast). any idea is welcome, but we will have to wait a while in my opinion.
meanwhile, there's a lot we can do to keep the series strong this 2013 and beyond:
- sign the "save futurama again" petition, it is one of the things we did back in 2003 in the 1st cancellation.
- watch the last 13 futurama episodes on comedy central, this june 19, 2013 (tell everyone to watch the premiere of each episode, we don't know when we will see new ones)
- buy the blu-ray, dvd and all the other official futurama merchandise, there's a lot of great stuff and that way you support futurama believe it or not.
- keep watching the re-runs in cable, satellite and any air local station of your countries.
- tweet about the #futurama cancellation, use the hastags #futuramacancelled and #savefuturama
- talk about it also on facebook, pinterest, instagram and all the other (and future) mayor social networks.
- don't you dare to stop creating futurama fan stuff, all the love that we give to the series are a great part of futurama, keep sending, keep posting.
read you in the future!
