'Futurama' takes its head out of the jar
Pizza boy Fry may have been in cryogenic suspension for 1,000 years, but it turns out Futurama was in cold storage for just three years. Variety reports that Comedy Central will resurrect Matt Groening’s cult fave toon with at least 13 new episodes due in 2008. As with Family Guy, the show’s popularity in reruns and DVD sales made possible the show’s return from cancellation purgatory. The moral of the story, for fans of other prematurely canceled shows: Keep buying those discs, kids.
