The fate of Futurama wasn't so certain just a summer ago. It all started with the release of a casting notice to replace the original voices in a new season of the animated series. This news caused some serious Futurama drama among the show's fans, and started several online movements to show support for the original actors. After two weeks of negotiations, the 20th Century Fox and the actors reached a salary agreement, and all was well in the universe.

Tonight, the show makes its triumphant return with many of the show's original writers, and all of its original voice cast, including Billy West (Fry, Dr. Zoidberg, Zapp Brannigan), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender), Tress MacNeille (Mom), Maurice LaMarche (Kif), and Phil LaMarr (Hermes). You can find the Voice Chasers full voice cast listing here.

Check out the Arts Beat blog of The New York Times for an article on the return of the series that includes quotes from some of the voice actors.

The Futurama season premiere airs tonight, Thursday, June 24th, at 10pm ET on Comedy Central. Check your local listings and make sure to tune in!

I put a new blurb on the Futurama voice cast page reflecting the story, and added the dates by way of the item on Wikipedia.
