Kicker of Ass of the Week: 7/30/07

This weeks Kicker of Ass of the Week is…

That’s right ladies and germs, according to E! Online Futurama will be returning to the airwaves with all new episodes. While it is unclear what station (FOX, Cartoon Network, or others) will play host to the show it is clear that Matt Groening and David X. Cohen will be returning to the Planet Express helm. While the talks are still in their earliest stages, and can’t help but believe that Matt and David wouldn’t even consider doing this unless Billy West, Katey Sagal and John Di Maggio had signed on. My hope is that the entire voice cast returns but at least with those three all of the primary characters aside from Hermes and Amy will be covered. My only other primary hope would be that all of the original writers return as well as it was their genius that made the series as great as it was.

Futurama is one of my all time favorite television series and to say I am excited about its return is the biggest understatement I have ever made. This almost makes up for the fact that FOX is making an Alvin and the Chipmunks movie…almost.
