Production Season 2 was the second season of Futurama during the original run, following the first season. It consisted of 19 episodes.

Broadcast wise, most of its episodes, except the last three, were considered part of broadcast season 2. The last three was part of broadcast season 3, along with episodes from season 3.

Season 2 was also the first season to see irregularity in broadcast compared to the production order However, the only two times the broadcast order differed from the production order were simply two episodes switched..

Plot development

Unlike other seasons, season 2 has very little plot development. It uses facts established in season 1, but never gets beyond that.

The season does get a lot of facts across though, and introduces Farnsworth's "son", Cubert Farnsworth. Richard Nixon's head is also elected as the President of Earth; a plot point that is addressed in many future episodes.


Writing for season 2 began shortly after season 1 had begun airing,[1] David X. Cohen recall conceptuating parts of the plot of "The Problem with Popplers" on an aeroplane in August 1999.[1]
