Simpsons and Futurama crossover set for November

July 22nd, 2014 by Marc Comments


Well the Family Guy Simpsons episode is in the bag (see here) and now it seems that Matt Groenig’s other hit animated series Futurama is coming to Springfield.  Well, we knew this a while ago, but it’s nice to get the confirmation…

Simpsons producer Al Jean confirmed at  the Television Critics Association at the weekend that the crossover would occur in the Simpsons in November, reports The Wrap.

The episode will feature Futurama voice actors Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Phil LaMarr, Lauren Tom and Tress MacNeille.

On a slightly darker note, Jean also confirmed that a Simpsons character will die this season in an episode called Clown in the Dumps. Hmmmmmmmmmmm…

However, don’t depair because the character will return in flashback or possibly as a ghost.

On top of all that, this season will see Jane Fonda playing Mr Burns’ girlfriend and Willem Dafoe will appear as Bart’s new teacher, Mr. Lassen.

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….
