Futurama Cast Speaks on Show's Return

by at . Comments

We cannot wait for the return of Futurama, as the animated comedy airs new episodes again on Comedy Central this summer, starting tonight.

But there's a group of people even more excited about this than the TV Fanatic staff: the Futurama cast.

TV Guide spoke to the actors and actresses that voice characters such as Fry and all of them expressed shock and joy over their return to the air. To wit:

Bill West: "In my heart of hearts, I knew this show was too good to die."

John DiMaggio: "The amount of times the show has been revived from the dead is unbelievable. I love working on zombie Futurama."

Katey Sagal: "The show has been consistently intelligent and funny. To me it's always been one of the best-written shows that I've ever been on... besides Sons of Anarchy."

Maurice LeMarche: "There's a bigger emotional core than ever there was in a season. This season we have more shows that may leave you with a little tear in your eye or make you say, 'Wow, that show really said something.'"

Catch up on your favorite Futurama quotes now and return to TV Fanatic tomorrow for a rundown of the latest.  We'll update that section every week, all summer long.
