The Planet Express Crew Returns in Trailer for New Season of Futurama

Matt Groening has a lot of cult shows under his belt, and besides The Simpsons, he also has his sci-fi comedy series Futurama. The last season of the series came out way back in 2013, but thanks to Hulu, we’re now getting an 11th season that will bring back Fry, Leela, Bender, and the rest of the Planet Express crew.

A new trailer just dropped for the upcoming season, and it tackles topics like COVID, Crypto, and Frank Herbert’s Dune. Check this out:

With the original show being conceived back in the 90s, it’s going to be interesting to see just how much the writing has evolved to address things that are currently happening with society like a global pandemic (maybe universal in the show) and crypto currency. There’s even the concept of a virtual assistant which saw its rise after the last season was released.

With Simpsons considered to be a show well past its prime, I’m interested to see how Futurama will be different, especially with the different target audience and setting. Admittedly, the show’s winning factor is the central crew, so no matter what the Planet Express team is tackling, I think everyone will still want to see what happens with Fry, Leela, Bender, Farnsworth, Zoidberg, and the rest.

Here’s the official description for the series:

While delivering pizza on New Year’s Eve 1999, Philip J. Fry is accidentally cryonically frozen and thawed out one thousand years into the future. From the creator of “The Simpsons,” “Futurama” is a sci-fi animated comedy.

Futurama Season 11 comes to Hulu on July 24.
