This summer, after a brief 10-year hiatus, “Futurama” has returned for a brand new season, with ten new episodes for the eleventh season. A new episode is released every Monday on Hulu in the United States, Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ around the world.

The series follows Phillip 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.

Disney has ordered twenty new episodes of “Futurama”, and recently “, Futurama” executive producer Claudia Katz spoke with SFX Magazine about future seasons of the show.

“We had the privilege of doing 52 episodes for Comedy Central, which was fantastic. These days, you can’t assume that you’re going to be able to finish on your own terms. So that led to the writers being very conscientious about always doing a season finale, and not taking anything for granted. And that is still true to this day. We’re doing these 20 episodes and I think everybody is really hopeful and optimistic that we’ll get to do more. But in the same way, each season has a season and (hopefully not) series finale.”

The new series features many original stories with the crew exploring the future of vaccines, bitcoin, cancel culture, and streaming TV. The full original cast John DiMaggio, Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman, have returned for the new season.

“Futurama” is produced by 20th Television Animation, a part of Disney Television Studios with animation provided by Rough Draft Studios. “Futurama” is created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen. Executive Producers include Groening, Cohen, Ken Keller and Claudia Katz.

It’s unknown if “Futurama” is going to be returning for another season, though the good news is that the first batch of ten episodes is coming to Disney’s streaming services this summer, with another ten episodes set to follow.  With the writer’s and actor’s strikes underway, it’s unlikely we will get news on if the show will return, nor have we heard from Disney about how successful the relaunch of the show has been.  So we are going to have to wait a little longer.

The previous ten seasons of “Futurama”, along with the first few episodes from the latest season are available to stream now on Hulu in the United States, Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ around the world.
