REVIEW: Futurama Reboot

Futurama gets rebooted after being cancelled in 2013

It’s been a long 10 years for fans of Matt Groening’s hit adult cartoon series, Futurama. After years of protesting from fans, Hulu took notice and ordered a new 20 episode season, picking up where the series left off in 2013. The season has been split into two parts, with each part containing 10 episodes. The first 10 episodes premiered July 24, 2023, and the last 10 episodes will air in late 2024.

Futurama is a workplace sitcom that follows an interplanetary delivery company. The main character, Phillip J. Fry is a lazy pizza delivery boy who is accidentally cryogenically frozen until the year 3000.

Despite being on pause for a decade, Futurama picked up the story seamlessly without missing a step. After watching the first episode, “The Impossible Stream,” I was blown away with nostalgia. The reboot had the same feel of the original episodes, but with fresh storylines.

One of the things I enjoyed with the reboot are the storylines centered around current events. In typical Futurama fashion, the show finds ways to make satirical story lines around current events, such as cryptocurrency and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the long-awaited reboot of Futurama. I thought the story remained fresh while maintaining a classic and nostalgic feel. I definitely believe it’s worth a watch, especially if you’re a fan of the original series.
