    From Entertainment Weekly:

    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.

    Apparently there's a thread on this already in the regular TV&M forum, so the mods can lock or merge as they see fit.

    Meh, it sucked post-cancellation anyway, so no loss.

    Ah well, far better to go out on a realtive high, rather than being dragged out long after it should have been put to bed.

    Well, fuck!

    Oh well, I guess one can't be too angry. After all, this show is on something like its third life now anyway, but damn. I've enjoyed the new episodes just as much (and at times more) than the pre-cancellation days. Simpsons and Family Guy may only be shallow imitations of their former greatness, but Futurama continues to go strong.

    Ah well, Futurama has proven resilience and that it just can't stay down. I doubt this will be the last we see of it.

    I've been still enjoying the show, so I was hoping we'd get at least a couple more seasons. We did get 52 more episodes since it started on Comedy Central and that's a lot more than some shows get their entire runs, so I guess we shouldn't be to upset.

    Like I said in the General TV & Media thread, I'm thrilled the show came back from cancellation and it's been a great second (or third, if you count the movies) run but it's better for the show to bow out gracefully. I will surely miss it but we got a lot of episodes to rewatch for years to come.

    Ah, well, it's a shame, but the show has had a couple of resurrections already, so we're pretty lucky. I wish some other of my favorite shows had been so fortunate.

    And, who knows-- maybe somebody else will decide to bankroll another season or two.

    There's always Kickstarter. :D

    Well at least they'll keep producing the comic book version for years to come.

    That person reading it must be very important.
