Futurama (Hulu Revival) – Trailer Talk
Despite being cancelled and revived then cancelled again, it seems that ‘Futurama’ will never go, because streaming service Hulu have announced a new revival of the beloved show.
‘Futurama’ was an animated show created by Matt Groening and follows the delivery boy Fry as he accidently cryogenically freezes himself, sending him to the year 3000. There, he meets a group of various interspecies characters and learns to live in the future.
Even though I watched ‘The Simpsons’ more, ‘Futurama’ was still a fantastic show that was always charming, funny and, at times, emotional. And, while the last revival was ok, I am looking forward to what new stories the show will tell. Just like ‘The Simpsons’, ‘Futurama’ also liked to comment on current news stories and bases its humour around that occasionally, and this series looks to be no exception.
References seen in the trailer include the movie adaptation of ‘Dune’, lockdowns and home testing (with a futuristic twist!) and COVID and what the other characters think of it. It echoes themes the ‘Animaniacs’ revival did, which also commented on celebrity and political news, but it works. These shows executed these themes really well, so I hope the upcoming series of ‘Futurama’ continues the good quality of writing.
I am once again looking forward to the 2023 revival of ‘Futurama’. As well as hoping for a good writing quality, the animation and even original voice cast are exactly the same; it’s as if the show never left our screens at all. It’s something that I am happy about and welcome with open arms.
