Sci-fi comedy, created by Matt Groening and produced by 20th Century Fox, debuted initially on Fox in 1999 and ran on the net until 2003. Reruns ran on Cartoon Network, and in 2009 Comedy Central revived the show with new half-hour episodes.

By its series finale, “Futurama” will have logged 140 episodes during its run.

“Futurama,” which centers on a quirky group of friends living in “New New York” during the 31st century, has earned several Emmys in animation categories, including Outstanding Animated Program.

Final-season guest stars will include Larry Bird, Dan Castellaneta, Sarah Silverman, George Takei, Adam West and Burt Ward.
