Good news, everyone! Season 7 of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen’s Emmy-winning sci-fi comedy series Futurama will kick off on Comedy Central with two new back-to-back episodes Wednesday, June 20 at 10 p.m. Fans can look forward to 13 new half-hour episodes this season, awesome guest stars and a slew of new related web content.
Step back in to the 31st century on June 20 with the season premiere episode “The Bots and the Bees,” in which Bender (John DiMaggio) fathers a child with the office vending machine, played by guest star Wanda Sykes. Immediately following will be “A Farewell to Arms,” which finds the gang coping with an ancient prophecy that predicts the end of the world in 3012! (Sound familiar?)
