I dunno, I think it'd be pretty weird not having Katey Sagal as Leela.

Was that the last episode made, or are you saying it went downhill after that?

does anyone have a legitimate source for this?

Because the only thing I saw was a link to a rumormill website that didn't list a story source.

As excited as I was about the return of Futurama, FOX has once again ruined that experience by their callous actions. According to no less than cast members John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr, and Maurice LaMarche on their Facebook pages,

After about 5 minutes of using a cryptic, little-known search engine called "google", I found a Hollywood Reporter article that references a statement from Fox.

It's worth noting that this may not be final.  To get rid of the beloved cast members would sully the show's return to fans, who are basically the reason the show got revived in the first place.

Apparently it's a big publicity stunt.  The original cast is still going to ComiCon, and there'll be a 'confrontation' with FOX executives, or some such.

'Course, I heard that on the 'chan, so take with a grain.   :advice:

Ha ha no there isn't.

Long story short, deep cuts were made to the budget of the show, and as a result they simply can't afford to hire the original cast back on.  This kind of creates a catch-22 for Futurama fans.  Either you accept a different voice cast to keep the show going, or insist that Fox go only with the original cast, in which case they might not be willing to take the financial risk and kill the thing entirely.

Yeah, so, I really don't care about this news. The series was going to be bad with or without the old voice actors. 3/4 of the movies proved that to me.

Show me a Futurama fan who'd rather have the show back without the voice cast than to have it just die forever, and I'll punch them in the face for you.
