Futurama Returning for a New Season on HULU.

Futurama Returning for a New Season on HULU.

It's been nearly ten years since we last saw any new adventures of Fry, Leela, Bender and the rest of the Futurama crew.  Now it looks like we will be getting a new 20 episode season of the popular cult animated Sci-Fi show thanks to Hulu. 

Matt Groening and David X. Cohen created the series which aired for five season's on Fox prior to it going for an additional two seasons at Comedy Central.  Both Groening and Cohen are reported to be returning to helm this revival of the show.

According to HULU the original stars of the show, Billy West (Fry) and Katey Sagal (Leela) along with the rest of the cast - Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman are all confirmed to be reprising their rolls on the show.

There is some concern that they have have not secured the voice talent of John Dimaggio, who is the voice of Bender, but there are reports that a deal is currently being finalized. Hopefully, that is the case as, lets be real for a second, They don't want to recast Bender. It would be a tough sell to the fans if that were to happen.

What do you think?  Are you excited for a new season of Futurama?  Would you watch if they recast Bender?  Let us know in the comments.
