“Futurama” is coming to an end again – again. The animated series, which already boasts of more than one home network, will bow out on Comedy Central this summer, once the last 13 episodes of season 7 air, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
“Futurama will end its run following the 13-episode back half of its current seventh season, which bows June 19,” the publication writes.
While the series will definitely end on Comedy Central, producers aren’t ruling out yet the possibility that another network might be interested in it, even though ratings are definitely not what they once were.
Even if this is really the end – or, better yet, especially if this is really the end –, they plan on making it one that fans will remember for eternity.
“We’ve been in this situation before, and it’s tempting when you’re doing episodes that are as good or better than anything you’ve ever done to continue doing it,” Matt Groening says of the possibility of taking the show to another network.
