Futurama: Set to Return This Summer!

at . Comments

Go ahead and fully celebrate, Futurama fans.

While it was reported almost a year ago that the cartoon sitcom would return with new episodes this summer, enthusiasm was tempered a bit by the news that contract squabbles would prevent any of the original cast members from lending their voices to these new installments.

But that's a worry of the past, as evidenced by the Comedy Central promo below.

The video depicts all of our favorite characters, replete with the voices that made them famous. Watch it now and get psyched: 26 episodes will air on the cable network, starting in June.

Futurama Quotes

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Fry

Fry: So what do you do, Bender?
Bender: I'm a Bender. I bend girders. That's all I'm programmed to do.
Fry: Were you any good?
Bender: Are you kidding? I could bend a girder to any angle - thirty degrees, thirty-two degrees... thirty-one... but I couldn't go on living once I found out what they were for.
Fry: What?
Bender: Making suicide booths!
