Creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen will be back as well as most of the show's voice actors including Billy West as Fry and Katey Sagal as Leela.

Also returning are Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman.

“It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of ‘Futurama’ one more time before we get canceled abruptly again,” Groening said.

"Futurama" originally aired from 1999 to 2003 on Fox. In 2008, Comedy Central began airing new episodes until signing off in 2013. In total, 140 episodes aired over 7 seasons.

"When presented with the opportunity to bring fans and viewers new episodes of ‘Futurama,’ we couldn’t wait to dive in,” Craig Erwich, president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, said. “This iconic series helped blaze the trail for the success of adult animation since its initial launch and we look forward to Matt & David continuing to pave the way and further establishing Hulu as the premiere destination for fans of the genre.”

This "Futurama" news comes as revivals of other animated series like "Beavis and Butt-Head," "Clone High," "Ren & Stimpy" and a "Daria' spinoff are all in the works.

The new season of "Futurama" is expected to premiere in 2023.
