The science geekiest show on broadcast television was once Futurama, an animated series co-created by The Simpsons’ Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, a Simpsons writer and showrunner. The show has competition now from programs as varied as broadcast’s Big Bang Theory, cable’s Mythbusters and Eureka, and Felicia Day’s Web network “Geek & Sundry.”But, good news, everyone! Futurama is back for another season, starting with two new episodes on June 20 on Comedy Central, where it premiered the last two seasons as well. Thirteen episodes will air on Thursdays at 10 p.m. (9 p.m. Central). It’s possible the final episode in this season…will be its last! Or…will it?Cohen, who spoke from a sound-recording studio in Los Angeles on Thursday that was nearly a Faraday cage as well, said, “These are really good classic Futurama episodes, as good as any we’ve ever done. There are perhaps a few more flying body parts.” He said the arc of this season through next summer is Philip J. Fry, the show’s hero-idiot-lover, will try to win the one-eyed Turanga Leela’s heart for good.
