First Family Guy, now Futurama set for Springfield…

July 23rd, 2013 by Marc Comments

OK, we reported last week that Family Guy and The Simpsons were soon to meet in a one-off episode in 2014, but it looks like that’s not the end of the Simpson crossovers…

At SDCC last weekend Simpsons executive producer Al Jean announced that Matt Groening’s other creation Futurama would be crossing over with TV’s favourite yellow family.

And the best part? The Story will record next month and will feature Bender returning to the past to kill Bart who does something that destroys the future… and, while I’m a little cynical, I sort of love this idea of Bender as the Terminator and Bart as John Connor.

The episode will star Futurama’s cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr, and Maurice LaMarche and will air as the finale of season 25 in May or the premiere of season 26 in September.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
