Futurama makes its return to Comedy Central in less than two months.The season seven premiere starts with a bang on Wednesday, June 20 at 10 pm EST– and they’re not skimping. It’s a whole TWO-episode premiere! And if that wasn’t enough to look forward to, that’s Father’s Day weekend, so you can force your dad to watch Futurama with you because the episode is about him. Sort of. The point is, it’s still about dads!
For the uninitiated (where have you been?) Matt Groening and David X. Cohen’s animated sci-fi comedy series follows Philip J. Fry (Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who accidentally wanders into a freezer in New York City in 1999 and emerges a thousand years later. When he wakes up he finds himself in New New York City. Fry gets a job as a delivery boy for the Planet Express Intergalactic delivery company where he befriends a loud mouthed robot, Bender (John DiMaggio) and falls in love with Leela, a tomboy cyclops (Katey Sagal).
