Futurama has no future. Comedy Central canceled the show. Again!

After 14 years and 7 seasons, Planet Express crew will land its ship. Comedy Central has decided (for the third time) to end Futurama for good. In its seven seasons on the air, Futurama has won multiple awards and has even inspired a mathematical theorem. However, its ratings have declined from 2.6 million viewers in 2010 to 1.7 million in 2012. The remaining episodes will air this summer before closing on Sept, 4.

The show was created in 1999 by Marr Groening (“The Simpsons”). He still hopes that Futurama will be picked up by another network “We would love to continue. We have many more stories to tell. We've been in this situation before and it's tempting when you're doing episodes that are as good or better than anything you've ever done to continue doing it.”

Former basketball star Larry Bird, comedy actress Sarah Silverman and Star Trek's George Takei have contributed voice-overs to the latter half of the series.

While the fans are disappointed, exec. producer David Cohan said: “I felt like we were already in the bonus round on these last couple of seasons, so I can't say I was devastated by the news.It was what I had expected two years earlier. At this point, I keep a suitcase by my office door so I can be cancelled at a moment's notice."
