- Futurama season 12 discussions are happening and there may be a feature-length movie outing for the Planet Express crew.
- Hulu has confirmed Futurama season 12 is officially on its way.
- The Futurama season 12 cast will likely include all the main characters, and the story could go in any direction, known for its unpredictability and satire of real-life events.
Futurama season 12 discussions have been rife since the rebooted show has been a huge success for Hulu, and details are starting to emerge on what’s next for the Planet Express Crew after season 11. Futurama officially ended in 2013 with season 10, and the finale perfectly wrapped up Fry’s story. However, the episode also kept the possibility open for a revival, and Hulu took full advantage of the ambiguity. Futurama season 11 returned to Planet Express as if absolutely nothing has changed, leaving the door open for Futurama season 12 and beyond too.
The fact Futurama has lived to see a possible season 12 is itself an achievement. The 10-year gap between seasons 10 and 11 was no surprise, as Futurama’s history of being canceled and renewed by different networks is a seemingly endless cycle. Fox stopped buying episodes of the series midway through the production of Futurama season 4 and the show was then picked up by Adult Swim between 2007 and 2009. Comedy Central then acquired the rights and ordered three more seasons. Hulu then revived the show in 2023, and already has more seasons in mind.
Most Recent Futurama Season 12 News
While the writing was on the wall for season 12 since the premiere of 11, the biggest news regarding the series is that Futurama has been renewed for seasons 13 and 14 as well. This news has huge implications for the future of the beloved animated series at its new home on Hulu, and it is clear that the streamer has abundant confidence in the series. Only the most successful TV shows get multi-season orders, and Futurama is clearly a property that Hulu intends to stick with for years to come.
Futurama Season 12 Is Confirmed
Futurama season 12 is expected sometime in 2024, and the renewal of the new season is overshadowed by Hulu’s ambitious multi-season order for the animated sci-fi comedy. Little else has been revealed about the new season, but it is definitely happening since Hulu expects to see seasons 13 and 14 in the next few years as well.
Futurama Season 12 Cast
Futurama isn’t exactly a series where any one of the main characters is likely to die, and the Futurama season 12 cast will likely see the return of the whole Planet Express crew. This wholesale return means that audiences can expect to see familiar cast members such as:
Philip J. Fry/Professor Farnsworth/Dr. Zoidberg/Zapp Brannigan
Futurama Season 12 Story
The Futurama season 12 story can go in any direction, as the series is known to be totally unpredictable, especially as there’s never any overarching season narrative. However, given that the show also often satirizes real-life events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic episode in Futurama season 11, it’s easy to speculate what could happen in Futurama season 12. The season could make fun of all the strikes in Hollywood, or it could become even more meta by joking about “Bendergate,” which was the name given to the salary negotiations by fans.
