But lo and behold, could the hand of fate have undone this cruel injustice?
Our friend Billy West has once again spilled the beans. According to a post he made on his message board, Futurama is going to be renewed for television with 26 episodes. No word as to what station it will be on, who will rejoin the cast, or whether it'll be two seasons that would consist of 13 episodes each or one HUGE season of 26 episodes. Please keep in mind though, all this information is still very unofficial. Nothing is down on paper. No contracts signed. Nada. NOTHING. But, it's still pretty awesome.
Of course you realize, I did wet my pants in the manner of an overstimulated puppy at this point. But alas, when you read to the bottom of the post, you discover that it was just a hoax, a rumor spread by the misinformed.
*Sniff* Why, Groening? Why do you toy with us so?
