“Futurama” will return with its original voice cast, says The Hollywood Reporter.
After a standoff with 20th Century Fox TV over salary, the five “Futurama” actors on Friday reached an agreement with the producing studio to reprise their parts on the show, set to come back with new episodes on Comedy Central in mid-2010.
The deals for Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, John DiMaggio and Billy West all closed with 20th TV on Friday.
“We are thrilled to have our incredible cast back,” “Futurama” creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen said in a statement. “The call has already gone out to the animators to put the mouths back on the characters.”
