Comedy Central Cancels Futurama, Finale Will Air Sept. 4

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Futurama, the only animated show brave enough to tell us the truth about weird the 31st century really is, will air its series finale on September 4th on Comedy Central.

The sci-fi show began on Fox but was axed in 2003. Comedy Central revived it in 2008 with two new seasons split across four years. The cancellation doesn’t come as a shock to showrunner David X. Cohen. “I felt like we were already in the bonus round on these last couple of seasons, so I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” Cohen told Entertainment Weekly.

The final episodes will begin airing on Comedy Central on June 19th, with the finale airing on September 4th. The cancellation is sad news, but was anyone still watching the show? Is it finally time for it sail into that good night? Everybody do the Bender?
