    I’m still hoping it will resurrect somewhere, somehow :(

  • merrrranga

    more movies! this show must never die!

  • TV Viewer

    I agree; more direct to video movies, cable tv specials, and someday a theaterical motion picture for the many Emmy winning series. It’s too good to end next week. It’s not over until Matt Groening and David X. Cohen says it’s over and never ever coming back with new episodes.

    I think a series should end when the people in charge want to end it, and, it seems way too early to bring Futurama to a close, just because Comedy Central is cancelling it. The cancellation by Fox did not end the program and Comedy Central should not have the last word.

  • CBSviewer

    Too bad it was canceled :(

  • David

    in some way i am not bothered if it is truly the end
    it is a brilliant and show and as a die-hard fan, it is as fresh as ever for a show in it’s 7th season. i would rather end it on a high, then it to become a bit dull and keep recyling the same stories like The Simpsons and Family Guy.

    I hope fox being this back on Sunday. I think it will be higher rated than bobs burgers.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Perhaps the finale can get a 1.0 rating. It seems crazy that this show premiered to a 9.6 in the demo and has gotten .6′s and .7′s in its final season

  • Ally

    You think that there is Standard Time in September?! LOOOOOLOL

  • Domingo

    the ratings were low for like of publicity. I sincerely hope they bring it back.
