Comedy Central has resurrected the former Fox animated series from The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. At least 13 new episodes will be produced for the first time since the series originally ran from 1999-2003. The new batch is part of a deal the cable network made with 20th Century Fox Television last year to pick up syndicated rights to the Futurama library, which consists of 72 episodes. Comedy Central also had an option to air any new episodes produced. Visit HollywoodReporter.com for more.
