Comedy Central is finalizing a deal for a 26-episode seventh season pickup of Futurama.
Comedy Central resurrected Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's animated
sci-fi comedy in 2009, six years after it was cancelled by Fox, with a
26-episode sixth season order. The first batch of 13 episodes averaged
2.5 million viewers, with the remaining 13 airing this summer. The 26
newly ordered episodes will follow the same pattern, airing in two
installments of 13 episodes in 2012 and 2013. Futurama has been a big hit online, growing from 1 million Facebook fans at its launch on Comedy Central to 11 million.
Good job everyone!! Now lets all watch it so they give us 26 more!
