Futurama return date

Futurama promo picAccording to TV Squad, the official return date for Futurama was revealed at Comic-Con:

Futurama is back, and now we know in what form. The show will return on November 27th as a full-length high-def film sold on DVD. It will be followed by three additional films, and each film will be divided into four episodes each to be aired on Comedy Central. So, that’s 4 DVD movies or 16 new episodes depending on how you look at it.

I am so there! I’ll buy “Bender Gets Made” on November 27th, and then play the hell out of it. And do my little happy dance. I cannot express how bummed I was after watching “The Devil’s Hands Are Idle Playthings,” realizing that there would never be another Futurama. Now that Futurama has a new lease on life, I intend to make the most out of it.

I realize that Futurama is still going to end. I wouldn’t be surprised if these four DVD movies signify the end, and that the last DVD movie is the end of Futurama forever. I’ll still appreciate the chance to re-visit the 30th century, and to spend just a little more time with these characters.

And Fry and Leela had better get together by the end of the last movie!
