‘Futurama’ scores a fresh Hulu reboot with original vocal cast on board

Rocketing back onto the airwaves, Variety announced this week that the cult sci-fi animated series “Futurama” will be resurrected once more on the Hulu streaming platform.  Along with the joyful news comes word from 20th Television Animation and Hulu Originals that the 20-episode revival will be headed up by the original series creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen.

Nearly all of the legacy vocal cast members have signed on to the project like Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman. The one exception, and one that immediately ignited the online ire of devout “Futurama” fans, is John DiMaggio, who lent his gruff voice to Bender the robot and many additional characters.
