Discussion[edit]

Damn. If any of these news article ([1] [2] [3]) holds any truth, Futurama as we know it, probably won't be Futurama as we know it.

Citations such as cutting cost is among the reasoning. Some people are sceptical still, myself included, whether this is actually true. Although, Variety does have a statement from 20th Century Fox. --SvipTalk 20:30, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

I seriously doubt the voice cast would demand "tenfold" the amount they made before. They love Futurama and want it back as much as we do. I'm sure they need more pay, but they're not going to be unreasonable. More likely, Fox wants to pay them less (or even the same) and then when things go to crap, they can blame someone else. They can point to the voice cast and say "See? It wasn't us this time!" --Buddy 22:23, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
This is a stunt. What for, I don't know, but I know damn well it's a stunt. It's publicity at its cheapest.
For the record, if this does come true, I move that the Infosphere should ignore the new content as "non-Futurama". --SvipTalk 22:29, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
Hopefully, we'll find out more at the comicon panel. Until then, speculation will abound. I know lots of fans will ask, and unless they give a "no comment", we'll know something. As for treating the new Futurama differently... Personally, it all comes down to Matt and Dave. It's their baby, and if they are truly happy with the direction it goes, who are we to argue? I'd be open to treating it as a lower level of canon, though. --Buddy 22:34, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
Okay, so the story goes like this: "The crew in it's entirety is transported to an unknown location in the universe and then the crew isn't in the show anymore (or voiced by other people." That doesn't seem plausible. In any case, I'll stay in the "open" position. It could be good or bad. -Mini-Me 22:48, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
Even Phil LaMarr is saying it's true. And the list is the main characters, not just minor roles... --23:00, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
We know it is true. But we do not know if the actors will be replaced. It is most likely that it is a negotiation ploy by 20th Century Fox Television (articles on that here: [4] [5]). What I am questioning is not that the audition is real, but whether the purpose of it is real. --SvipTalk 23:02, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
*Refuses to accept the possibility* Perhaps any auditions that are happening are actually for other characters, using the main character's lines. It may somehow cut costs to have smaller time actors in the parts of new tertiary or secondary characters, perhaps they are casting a new addition main character, like Zylex - Quolnok 03:24, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
I hope it's only a scare tactic. They'll be back. Just wait and see. This happened before with that other show. - Jasonbres 03:28, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
