Plot Synopsis

Based in the year 3000, the show centers around the Planet Express Delivery Company's three employees -- slow-witted Phillip J. Fry who accidentally cryogenically froze himself on New Year's Eve 1999 only to wake up a thousand years later; one-eyed, purple-haired orphan Leela; and an alcoholic/kleptomaniac robot named Bender. The company is run by 160-year old scientist Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, who happens to be Fry's distant nephew and closest cousin. On Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT, Comedy Central debuted the second-half of Season 7, the program's final season. Immediately before the one-hour premiere, Comedy Central aired an all-day marathon (10am-10pm ET/PT) of repeat episodes.
The series finale, "Meanwhile," airs Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT on Comedy Central. Plus, Comedy Central will live-stream FUTURAMA LIVE!, a pre- and post-show chat with series creator Matt Groening and Executive Producer David X. Cohen, immediately before (9:30pm ET/6:30pm PT) and after (10:30pm ET/7:30pm PT) the finale at Joining Matt and David for the first of two half-hours of conversation will be moderator Chris Hardwick and cast members Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Phil LaMarr, and Lauren Tom. For the post-show chat, Co-Executive Producer Patric M. Verrone and Supervising Director Peter Avanzino join the group. During these chats, series Producers, Writers, and Cast will discuss behind-the-scenes details, answer fan submitted questions, and laugh it up together one last time.
