from andPop

Matt Groening's other animated series, Futurama, has been given a new life by Comedy Central, three years after the show last aired on prime time.

E! Online reports that the former FOX program has been picked up for a minimum run of 13 brand new episodes, to begin airing in 2008.

"We are thrilled that Matt Groening and 20th Century FOX Television have decided to produce new episodes of Futurama and that Comedy Central will be the first to air them," said Comedy Central's senior VP, David Bernath.

Comedy Central purchased the syndicated rights to the show's 72-episode library last year.
