?Comedy Central has just ordered more episodes of Futurama! From EW:
The network has picked up another two cycles of 13 episodes — and
neither include the upcoming batch that launches this June. So that
keeps Futurama on the air through 2013. (Whether the order is
called the seventh season, or the eighth and ninth season, is still
being debated — since seasons on Comedy Central are split over two
years, do you call each year’s batch a season or do you call the full 26
episode order a season?) At any rate, last season averaged 2.5 million
viewers per week once DVR is added in.
Between this and the fact that Cartoon Network/Adult Swim ordered two more seasons of Venture Bros., we’re in pretty damned good shape for awesome cartoons through at least 2013. If only FX would go ahead and order another season of Archer, we could have the trifecta. Hey FX! Get on it! And thanks to Poe Ghostal for the tip.
