Good News Everyone!
The good news is the original cast have managed to come to terms with 20th Century Fox and the papers have been signed.
Maurice LaMarche who voices over a hundred of the characters on Futurama confirmed that he had signed on for the new series, which will be airing on Comedy Central.
“Officially, my deal is done,” LaMarche said Friday in an exclusive interview with SCI FI Wire. “While I can’t speak for the rest of the cast, I see no reason not to expect all the others will do the same by day’s end.”
In a more updated report Hollywood Reporter reveals that all deals were signed for Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, John DiMaggio and Billy West all closed with 20th TV on Friday. “We are thrilled to have our incredible cast back,” Futurama creators Matt Groening and David X.
