Futurama season 11 preview
Unless you’ve spent the last 10 years in hypersleep, you’ll have felt every single second since Futurama was last on the air. But finally – FINALLY! – the award-winning animation has been granted a new lease of life by Hulu, and we can’t wait to see Bender, Fry, and the Planet Express team getting into more fantastically futuristic yet amusingly recognisable scrapes.
Created by Matt Groening in 1999, following the success of The Simpsons, Futurama was rather ignominiously dropped by Fox a few years later despite being a critical hit. It earned 12 Emmy Award nominations and won two of them for Outstanding Animated Program. It was re-homed on Comedy Central until 2013, when the ostensible finale 'Meanwhile' aired and the show went on an indefinite hiatus.
But thrillingly for fans, Hulu greenlit a brand-spanking new, 20-episode season 11. All our favorite oddballs are returning, as is the original, iconic voice cast: clueless slacker Fry (Billy West), one-eyed Planet Express captain Leela (Katey Sagal), Fry’s mad scientist relative Professor Farnsworth (West), the brilliantly obnoxious Bender (John DiMaggio), and Dr. Zoidberg (West), the ship’s Decapodian physician whose fishy face gives everyone the ick.
Expect side-splitting sci-fi hot takes probing Earth’s present-day developments, from Covid-19 to Bitcoin. We'll see the preening Captain Zach Brannigan face the wrath of cancel culture, and Robot Santa go on the rampage in 'I Know What You Did Next Xmas', all while Fry foolishly attempts a TV streaming marathon that includes every TV show ever made. And, sometime in 3023, it appears that a pandemic caused by 'Explovid-23' will finally be overcome – huzzah!
Settle in for more hilarious sci-fi misadventures, as we explain below how to watch Futurama season 11 online.

How to save money on Disney+
While there's no longer a Disney Plus free trial to speak of, the Disney Plus price offers great value and is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix. Yet you can get more bang for your buck when you sign up for an annual subscription and get 15% off the monthly price. Yes, you have to splash a wad of cash initially, but with so much content to get stuck into, we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before your year is up. You're looking at $109.99/£79.90/AU$139.99 for a 12-month membership.
If your interests are farther reaching (and you're in the US), then we'd seriously recommend the fantastic value Disney Plus bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN Plus to your subscription price, with the Hulu element opening up a world of more adult-focused content, including Hulu Originals like Only Murders in the Building, Solar Opposites, The Bear, History of the World Part II and The Great. Meanwhile, ESPN Plus brings tonnes of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined ad-supported bundle costs just $12.99 per month.
What else should I know about Disney+?
Futurama season 11 is just the latest in a string of highly-anticipated releases exclusive to the platform, including Secret Invasion, Obi-Wan Kenobi, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Ms. Marvel and American Born Chinese. Plus, there's plenty more on the way, such as X-Men-97 and Loki season 2, both set to arrive in the coming weeks and months.
You'll also find National Geographic documentaries, Disney and Pixar classics, the entire Star Wars saga and every season of The Simpsons.
Futurama season 11 is available on the platform thanks to the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy, which has seen the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy.
Some of the best Star on Disney Plus shows include The Dropout, Snowfall, Welcome to Chippendales, The Act and Dopesick. And parents won’t have to worry about their kids accidentally seeing inappropriate content, as Star includes a slew of parental control features to ensure the service stays as family-friendly as ever.
It's available in the UK, most of Europe, and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand - but not in the US, where the media giant's Hulu service already has very similar ground covered.
