After original episodes of Futurama were yanked from Netflix, fans of the irreverent animated space comedy were thrilled to learn creator Matt Groening's beloved series would be coming to Hulu. All 140 episodes and four films will be available for streaming on October 16, Variety reports.
Those without the subscription streaming service will be able to enjoy Futurama on SyFy, who made a deal with Twentieth Television earlier this month to air the complete run of episodes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays, beginning November 11. The Emmy-nominated series originally aired on Fox from 1999-2003 before a 2007 revival which saw the release of four direct-to-DVD movies spliced into 30-minute episodes for airing on Comedy Central. New episodes began airing in 2010 until the series finale in September 2013.
Futurama isn't the only animated comedy joining Hulu: full runs of Bob's Burgers, The Cleveland Show, and American Dad! are headed to the streaming platform, alongside whole seasons of South Park, Rick & Morty, The Boondocks, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, Adventure Time, Squidbillies and Venture Bros. and new, uploaded as they air episodes of Family Guy, Archer, and The Simpsons.
Cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr, Lauren Tom and Tress MacNeille recently returned for Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, a 2017 mobile game that featured all-new animation and an original storyline inspired by the show.
