Futurama's Planet Express crew returns with 13 new episodes this summer on Comedy Central. Last summer's run of episodes ended in August 2012. This new season is actually the second-half of seven season.
If last year's schedule is any indication, the new episodes should begin premiering in late June.

As you may remember, the Fox show took a five-year layoff from 2003 to 2008, during which time fan demand became so great that the creators made a deal with Comedy Central to resurrect the show with a series of four films, which were cut into 22-minute episodes. Since 2008, new seasons have been coming out steady every year.
Stay tuned to Art Attack as the season premiere inches closer for interviews with some of the vocal talent. Here is hoping that John DiMaggio's Bender can record an outgoing recording for my voice mail box. Because that's what all serious journalists do.
