As anyone on a Futurama message board or news site between July and August of 2009 would be painfully aware, 20th Century Fox Television and the show's cast became locked in a dispute about a sixth season pay rise that saw the company use a recasting ploy in an attempt to get their way. While deals were eventually struck with the entire cast, during that time there was a lot of speculation among fans about why the cast was possibly being replaced and discussions about whether the series would, or even should, return without them. The timing of this event led to the cast's removal from a Comic-Con panel discussion, a decision that left fans with even more questions.
