Good news everyone! Futurama is headed to a new home on TV!!!
Syfy has acquired off-network rights to all 140 episodes of Futurama, as part of a multiyear, non-exclusive deal with 20th Century Fox.
Futurama will have its debut on Syfy on November 11, with the series airing Mondays and Tuesdays from 8pm-2am, and Saturdays from 8am-11am.
Futurama was known for many repeats on Adult Swim, before being brought back to life with additional seasons that were aired on Comedy Central from 2007. The show’s finale aired in September 2013, with the only notable new content since then being a podcast episode featuring the original voice acting cast that was released in September 2017.
The show won six Emmy awards, including two for best animated program. This exciting news comes several months after the channel’s rebranding timed to its 25th anniversary.
“We’re continuing to invest heavily to give our passionate fans the very best in genre programming, and I can think of no better addition to SYFY’s lineup than one of my personal favorites, Futurama,” said NBCU Cable entertainment networks president Chris McCumber.
