Futurama Fans lament!

Post by Kiskaloo on Mon 20 Jul 2009 - 19:10

FOX has released a statement noting that Billy West (Fry, Professor, and Ziodberg), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender), Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker, among others), and Tress MacNeil (Mom, and several others) will not be back for the new season of Futurama because of their salary demands.

I expect there will be riots at the SDCC Futurama panel on Saturday. And I expect I won't be bothering with the new season. NO

I agree, not Futurama. Way to go Fox. For a minute, I thought they had done something smart, but now I realized they've just decided to bend all Futurama fans over yet again. bang head

The show is doomed! *deep breath* DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!

Itīs not set in stone, they know the rating will take it up the ass if the original cast doesnīt return.

This happened to the Simpsons some 4/5 times and they ended up raising their salaries.

Iīll be very surprised if they donīt do the same with Futurama, which like most of the people said, it wonīt be Futurama without the original cast.

it's their fundamentalist leanings. Sometimes "the F word is bad!" can be taken too far.
I think we need a "tongue-in-cheek" smilie

I can't believe that. Oh well. Now I'm not watching it. Thanks Fox. Once again your executives can suck my dick.
