New Futurama in 2008

This just in from Darkhorizons. WOOT!!!! Nerds Rejoice!!!! **breaks out the champagne**

Comedy Central plans to resurrect the Fox animated series "Futurama" with at least 13 new episodes to be produced.

Running from 1999-2003, the show created by "Simpsons" originator Matt Groening ran for 72 episodes and yielded a large and loyal cult audience which has resulted in solid DVD sales and good ratings for repeat episodes on cable.

The new batch is part of a deal the cable network made with Fox Television last year to pick up syndicated rights to the existing episodes. Comedy Central also had an option to air any new episodes produced.

New and old episodes will begin airing in 2008 on Comedy Central. Actors Billy West, Katey Sagal and John DiMaggio have agreed to return as voices for "Futurama."
