During this year’s Summer Game Fest, Disney released a first-look teaser trailer for the upcoming twelfth season of the hit animated series, “Futurama”, which returns next month.

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.

The new video features the cast of the series and a few sneak peeks at the upcoming season.

Check out the first-look video below:

“Futurama” was created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen. Executive Producers for the show include Groening, Cohen, Ken Keeler and Claudia Katz.
