Futurama Plot and Cast
There’s no word on what the plot will entail as yet. However, we can look back over Futurama’s last season the seventh part of the series that aired in 2013 on Comedy Central to get an idea of what may unfold.
Fans will remember that the series finale saw Fry work up the courage to propose to Leela. Meanwhile, in the lab, Professor Farnsworth invented a new Time Button to allow the user to travel backwards in time by ten seconds.
However, after a series of unfortunate events, Farnsworth’s button had some unwelcome side effects, namely freezing everything in the world except for Fry and Leela. Could the revival pick up from this point, with Fry and Leela wandering through New York and Farnsworth trying to reverse the effects of the button? Fans will have to wait and see.
The expected cast members includes Billy West (Fry) and Katey Sagal (Leela) are all making a comeback for the revival, alongside ensemble characters Tress MacNeille (Mom, many others), Maurice LaMarche (Kif), Lauren Tom (Amy), Phil LaMarr (Hermes), and David Herman (Scruffy).
