Is Futurama Tapped Out?

Futurama Final Episode on Comedy Central

Last night (in the US) the final episode of Futurama aired. Or was it? This series has come back from cancellation before… http://ftotips.com/2013/06/08/oh-cruel-fate-to-be-thusly-boned/   Without getting to spoilery, all I’ll say is ~ if ‘Meanwhile’ was indeed the final Futurama episode ever (as a dedicated fan) I’m satisfied ♥ ♥ 🙂

But I really hope we haven’t heard the last from Futurama… I’ve already read that a crossover episode with The Simpsons is in the works for season 25 (or 26). Here’s the thing… this gets me crazy with anticipation. Once they’ve been in a Simpsons’ episode maybe that makes the Planet Express crew eligible for inclusion in The Simpsons Tapped Out game.

Now for a confession… I enjoy Futurama as much as I do The Simpsons – maybe more, because I’m a huge science fiction fan. Back in June when final new episodes started airing on Comedy Central, I got all fired up about the idea of EA possibly creating Futurama Tapped Out. I even created a whole ‘FTO Tips’ blog just in case.

The problem is, with only 140 episodes compared to The Simpsons massive 530 episodes (so far), I’m not sure if Futurama has a big enough fan-base to support the development of a full Tapped Out game of its own. Not yet, at least. If EA made a Futurama expansion to TSTO (like Krustyland), this would expose Fry, Bender and the PE gang to a tremendous number of TSTO players worldwide. This might stimulate enough interest to then spin-off a full FTO version. I actually proposed a scenario for a TSTO-Futurama expansion in this previous post…

Farnsworth Time Machine

Anyway, Futurama seems to be far from over… I’ve spotted rumors about all kinds of things including a ‘video game’ (maybe FTO?) and more Direct-to-DVD movies. I even saw talk of a full length theatrical movie and possibly even bringing the series back to Fox TV. Take heart Futurama fans, I really don’t believe we’ve heard the last from  Professor Farnsworth and his zany team of misfits. 😀

      • I’m watching it in 6 hours or so.
        Jurassic Bark wasn’t that moving until the last 10 seconds or so. It wasn’t great episode wise but the *The Fate of Philip J Fry* (name uncertain) was the best. EVER. Also does last episode contain Zoidberg vomit?

      • I watched meanwhile. I was near tears at the start , because I knew it’d be the last new Futurama I’d ever see. And I was sobbing out loud at the end.
        “Go around one more time?”
        “Okay.”
        Shame they or Zoidberg didn’t have kids.
