Back to the Future
Futurama is coming back for a 5th season. Wired has everything you need to know in an insanely in depth look at the show that I don't think has ever been done for the semi-short lived animated series.
Why the revival? Well...
But Futurama refused to die. Cartoon Network began airing reruns in January 2003, and they were greeted with wild enthusiasm. "It was beating late-night talk shows in key demographics, like 18- to 34-year-old men," Cohen says. The show has also been a hit on DVD. Sales figures are closely guarded, but one of the nerdier writers calculated that, based on their residual checks, the total gross to date is more than $100million.
