FUTURAMA has once again been revived—Hulu has ordered 20 episodes of the animated comedy, the streamer announced.

Returning for the new season are voice actors Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman.

“I’m thrilled to have another chance to think about the future… or really anything other than the present,” said co-creator David X. Cohen.

“It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of FUTURAMA one more time before we get canceled abruptly again,” added co-creator Matt Groening.

The series will go into production this month, with a planned 2023 premiere.

“When presented with the opportunity to bring fans and viewers new episodes of FUTURAMA, we couldn’t wait to dive in. This iconic series helped blaze the trail for the success of adult animation since its initial launch and we look forward to Matt & David continuing to pave the way and further establishing Hulu as the premiere destination for fans of the genre,” said Craig Erwich, President, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment.

“What I love about animation is that it’s possible for a successful show to take a pause and then resume years later, even on a different platform, and pick up right where it left off. FUTURAMA is one of those shows. The excitement from Hulu about returning Matt and David’s genius creation for all-new episodes has been off the charts. I’m thrilled that this incredible team will get to tell more stories, and that our Planet Express crew will have more adventures together. It’s a win for the fans who have loved the show since the beginning, and for the ones who will now discover it for the very first time,” added Marci Proietto, Head of 20th Television Animation.

The series originally aired on Fox from 1999-2003. It then was revived with direct-to-DVD films, which later aired on Comedy Central. Comedy Central then revived the series from 2010-2013.
