“Futurama” returns with new episodes in 2023 and on Hulu

The Angels – “Futurama”, the animated series created by Matt Groeningwill return to television more than 20 years after its debut with twenty new episodes that can be seen on the American platform Hulu, owned by Disney.

Groening, who is also responsible for “The Simpsons”, will take over the plot again with David X Cohen and the rest of the cast that gave voice to the characters in the original version, released in 1999 on the Fox channel.

“When we were presented with the opportunity to deliver new episodes of ‘Futurama,’ we couldn’t resist”Hulu’s president of original content said in a statement, Craig Erwichwho recalled that the series “paved the way for adult animation.”

Although “The Simpsons” is the longest-running cartoon series on television and has received countless awards, many fans of the genre have a predilection for “Futurama”, which after its cancellation in 2003 achieved cult status.

The fiction is set in a hypothetical futuristic New York in which Fry appears, a pizza delivery boy quite dissatisfied with his life who wakes up on New Year’s Day 1999 in 3000.

Fry gets a job at Planet Express Corporation, a parcel service that delivers to the five quadrants of the universe, and befriends Leela, an alien who drives the delivery ship.

The Comedy Central channel brought the format back in 2008 with a new season, but canceled its broadcast in 2013.

Starting in 2023, “Futurama” will find a third life on Hulu, a streaming platform known for hosting iconic adult animation series such as “American Dad,” “Family Guy” and “Rick and Morty.”

Hulu is only available in the United States, but Disney often premieres its series on platforms in other countries such as Star and Disney +.
