I wonder how much Matt Groenig and David X Cohen have to say about all this.  I'd be surprised if they just let it happen.

I won't watch it at first, see how the reviews are. As much as I love and appreciate the voice actors, a show like this lives or dies on the writing. So if it sounds like that is good, I might give it a chance.

It's a rotten thing for FOX to do, but I have come to expect nothing else from them.

I am just hoping it is some kind of hoax with Comic-con coming up.

So they say it's going to possibly have different voice actors?

Lame.

See people, this is why it should have JUST STAYED DEAD.  I'm starting to feel like DVDs are the Pet Semetary of television shows.

Maurice LaMarche posted a link on Facebook to this petition...so either he's playing along with the publicity stunt, or he's unaware.

Well at least we got four good movie one of which was a really good final out of it coming back.

I would love for more episodes to be made but if they recast I will have no problem with Into the wild green Yonder as a final.

Fox will give in.  It's not Futurama without the same voice actors.

Fox isn't going to cave for a show they are being forced to make against their will.

Fox doesn't want to produce any Sci-fi,they have been trying to kill Futurama from day one and they have found a way.  Fox only caved with The Simpsons because with out it they wouldn't have had a sunday night block at the time.  Why would they care if a show that they are making for CC gets canceled?

Still the show had a good run.

I think Fox will give in because it's the fans that brought it back and made it profitable.  If you dick around with the people who are the ones giving you money, then you're in trouble.

The panel at Comic Con is tomorrow. I imagine that we'll get some news regarding the voice actors then. Somehow I think it might come up in conversation.
