Wednesday’s episode marks the fourth time Futurama has signed off. Originally canceled by Fox back in 2003, the show later gained new life, and it was resurrected in 2010.
The (newest) series finale of Futurama aired Wednesday, Sept. 4 on Comedy Central.
The series ended with the wedding of Fry and Leela. “In my heart I feel like it really is the end,” says executive producer David X. Cohen. “Part of it is that the episode is so satisfying to me. It almost feels like we’d be wasting it if we came back again… But on the other hand, I’m reminded that I did say that with full conviction at least twice before, so people don’t seem to believe me. [Laughs] My opinion has been shown to be not of much value in predicting the future on this one subject.”
For those who may have missed out, Futurama was an American animated science fiction sitcom that was created by Matt Groening. The series followed the adventures of a late-20th-century New York City pizza delivery boy, Philip J. Fry, who, after being unwittingly cryogenically frozen for one thousand years, finds employment at Planet Express, an interplanetary delivery company in the retro-futuristic 31st century.
