About Futurama

Futurama is back on FOUR every Thursday at 8.30pm as part of our Outrageous FOUR Toons line up.


Created by Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons), Futurama is an epic animated sci-fi set in the year 3000, following the life of Phillip Fry (voiced by Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who accidentally stumbles into a freezer on December 31, 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later.


In his future home of “New New York City,” Fry goes to work for the Planet Express Intergalactic delivery company, where he becomes friends with Bender (voiced by John DiMaggio), a beer-fueled robot, and sets his romantic sights on Leela (voiced by Katey Sagal), a sexy Cyclops who occasionally beats him up.


Alongside Fry and Leela are the characters of Amy Wong and Kif Kroker (who are madly in love), Dr Zoidberg (the crustacean doctor who knows nothing about human physiology), Professor Farnsworth (the oldest living member of The Academy of Professors) and Nibbler (a cute and seemingly innocent pet who has ulterior motives...).
