Back in the beginning of March, it was announced that the desperately-wanted return of Futurama would finally make its second series debut on June 24, 2010 at 10pm EST. Now the very first image from the show’s big comeback has been released, and it’s a bit strange.
The Matt Groening and David X. Cohen series, which ran for four seasons from 1999 to 2003, was canceled by Fox after they severely-mishandled the show and moved it all over the TV schedule thanks to sporting events and not-so-bright executives. This didn’t sit well with fans, and as you know they’ve been fighting to get it back ever since. A fifth season in the form of four direct-to-DVD movies proved the fan-base was stronger than ever, and the sixth season was finally greenlighted almost one year before it’s scheduled return to your TV.

All of the voice talent including Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Phil LaMarr, Maurice LaMarche, and Lauren Toms are back after a bit of a scare, and June 24 will be a very exciting night with some much-needed laughs to help us get over our lingering Lost depressions.
