Futurama cancelled. (Again.)

From Entertainment Weekly:

The Planet Express ship will soon make its final delivery.

Comedy Central has decided not to renew*Futurama, which means that the 31st-century-set animated comedy will end its 140-episode run on Sept. 4. The final 13 episodes, which represent the second half of season 7, begin airing on June 19 at 10 p.m.
-----------------
The news did not come as a shock to executive producer David X. Cohen and creator Matt Groening, who had thought their space explorations were ending three*previous*times (after the Fox run, after the four movies, and after Comedy Central’s first 26-episode order). “I felt like we were already in the bonus round on these last couple of seasons, so I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” Cohen tells EW. “It was what I had expected two years earlier. At this point I keep a suitcase by my office door so I can be cancelled at a moment’s notice.”.
Personally, I'm okay with it. We've been through this dance before, and given how 'meh' the show has been since renewal I just can't care.
