Sadly, we gained’t get the unique 20 episodes we have been promised when the season was announced in February last year. Hulu didn’t say why that’s, however we will speculate. The continuing Writers Guild of America strike is a chance, and we’ve requested Hulu about that; we’ll replace if we obtain a solution.
Anyway, right here’s a teaser:
The brand new Futurama sequence will probably be obtainable for streaming each Monday over its 10-episode run, and Hulu says it’ll hit sequence tropes like Fry and Leela’s romance, Nibbler’s litter field, and the “secret historical past of Robotic Santa,” plus the standard assortment of tales impressed by present occasions — so there’ll be a pandemic, storylines about vaccines, cryptocurrency, and extra.
Final yr, negotiations to deliver again the entire forged hit a tough patch when John DiMaggio, who performs Bender, principally informed Hulu to chew his proverbial shiny steel ass, which Deadline reported was as a result of the streaming large didn’t offer enough money. That pissed off followers of the present, resulting in a viral DiMaggio tweet about it, however a couple of weeks later, the 2 got here to an settlement as he obtained a pay bump, although it feels like Hulu didn’t precisely say “shut up and take my cash” — Deadline reported that the rise was “minimal at best.”
