'Futurama' writers ask viewers to avenge them as the show enters another deep freeze
Futurama came to the end of its second life last night, but it didn’t go out restlessly. Scrawled in cartoon blood across the show’s ever-changing title card was one final message to its viewers: “Avenge us.” It’s a not-so-subtle dig at the fact that this is the series’ second time falling off of the air. The show was first cancelled in 2003 by Fox, before being brought back to life by Comedy Central in light of the success it saw through reruns. This year, however, Comedy Central declined to renew Futurama for an eighth season.
