Get ready to embark on an exciting journey back to the future with the highly anticipated eighth season of Futurama, as Hulu unveils its exhilarating first trailer. After a decade since its second farewell, this beloved series returns, bringing fresh thrills, dilemmas, and a captivating cast of characters from extraordinary realms of time and space.
Unlike its predecessors, the upcoming season will adopt a weekly release format, sparking lively discussions and making each episode a hot topic throughout the summer. Brace yourself for a frenzy of laughter, adventure, and boundless imagination as Futurama transports you to a dimension unlike any other.
The series’ foundation was laid in 1999, when Philip J. Fry (voiced by Billy West) stumbled into a cryogenic chamber, leading to a deep slumber lasting almost a millennium.
Upon awakening, Fry found himself in an unfamiliar world, transformed by the passage of time, its culture and way of life completely foreign to him.
In his quest to reconnect with his long-lost family, Fry serendipitously encounters Professor Farnsworth (also voiced by West), a seasoned scientist who has aged several decades.
Stranded and searching for purpose in this new era, Fry makes a fateful decision to join forces with Farnsworth, embarking on a journey to unravel the mysteries of the future and find his rightful place within it.
While the premise of the forthcoming reboot has been preserved within a cryogenic chamber, fans can expect the continuation of the beloved series’ trademark tone in its new adventures.
Futurama has weathered hiatuses before, facing initial cancellation after its run on Fox ended in 2003. However, the show enjoyed a brief revival on Comedy Central five years later before reaching another conclusion in 2013.
Now, with Hulu at the helm of the Planet Express ship, it remains to be seen how they will navigate the comedic exploits, guiding Futurama into a promising future brimming with laughter and excitement.
Take an exclusive sneak peek at the official trailer for the highly anticipated Futurama revival below, offering a tantalizing glimpse into the thrilling adventures to come.
Make sure to mark your calendars for the grand return of the show on July 24, available exclusively on Hulu. Get ready to immerse yourself in the captivating world of Futurama once again, where laughter, adventure, and limitless imagination await.
