Futurama has been missing from our lives for 10 years. We’ve missed that show breaking our brains. Luckily Hulu announced a 20-episode Futurama revival in February 2022. Though the initial news came with the question of whether John DiMaggio would return as Bender (he thankfully did), the dust settled, and the wait for the July release of the revival began. We got a very quick teaser back in May, but the Futurama revival finally has a full trailer for us to enjoy. Take a look below.
They’re back, baby, and excited to be in their new home. The ridiculousness we’ve come to expect from Futurama is certainly there in this revival, and we’re excited to see Fry, Leela, Bender, and the rest of the gang. There sure is a lot happening. There are even massive sandworms. Some of it is, shall we say, too real. But that’s Futurama for you. As the Futurama revival trailer shares, “New Episodes… Same Crew.” Enough said.
The Futurama revival synopsis reveals more about what we can expect. Here’s what it shares about season 11 of the show:
After a brief 10-year hiatus, Futurama has crawled triumphantly from the cryogenic tube, its full original cast and satirical spirit intact. The 10 all-new episodes of season 11 have something for everyone. New viewers will be able to pick up the series from here, while long-time fans will recognize payoffs to decades-long mysteries—including developments in the epic love story of Fry and Leela, the mysterious contents of Nibbler’s litter box, the secret history of evil Robot Santa, and the whereabouts of Kif and Amy’s tadpoles. Meanwhile there’s a whole new pandemic in town as the crew explores the future of vaccines, bitcoin, cancel culture, and streaming TV.
The new season of Futurama will debut on Hulu on July 24. Season 11 has 10 episodes, and they’ll drop weekly.
