Recap / Futurama

Go To

The following is a list of episodes for the 1999 animated sci-fi sitcom, Futurama, created by Matt Groening (who brought you The Simpsons and Life in Hell), centered on a loser pizza delivery boy named Philip J. Fry from the year 1999, who gets frozen for 1000 years at a cryogenics lab and awakens to a futuristic spin on New York City, where he befriends a drunken, vice-ridden robot named Bender, falls in and out of love with Leela, a purple-haired cyclops who believes she's the last of her kind from an alien planet, and becomes a delivery boy for his future nephew, Professor Farnsworth, who owns Planet Express, an intergalactic delivery company.

Seasons one to four are the episodes that aired on FOX, Season 5 is the made-for-DVD movie season (on Comedy Central, the movies are shown as four-part episodes with parts cut to make room for commercials), Seasons 6 and 7 are the Comedy Central episodes, and Seasons 8 and 9 are the Hulu episodes.

This list is presented in production order, which is also used on the DVD boxsets; FOX originally broadcast the episodes in constantly changing timeslots and with frequent pre-emptions, resulting in five broadcast seasons of the original run made up of the four production seasons. The two production runs of the Un-Cancelled series were each split into two and shown across two years.

The Comedy Central era ended on September 4, 2013, though Comedy Central and FXX airs every episode from the first to the last in reruns (including the made-for-DVD movies, which are shown as Edited for Syndication four-parter episodes). Since the Comedy Central era ended, there has also been a crossover episode with The Simpsons (Season 26's "Simpsorama") in which the entire family is targeted by Bender and the Planet Express crew because their existence will lead to a Bad Future, two freemium games for iOS and Android and an audio episode, "Radiorama", made as part of the Nerdist Podcast in 2017.

In February 2022, it was announced that Hulu have ordered 20 new episodes, with the first 10 episodes marked as Season 8 which began airing on July 24, 2023 and the last 10 marked as Season 9. In November 2023, it was announced that 20 more episodes, also split into two seasons, have been ordered.

He ends up on the run from a purple-haired, one-eyed alien career counselor named Leela, makes friends with a drunken, suicidal robot named Bender, and meets his great-to-the-umpteenth-power nephew Hubert Farnsworth, Mad Scientist and owner of the shipping company Planet Express.
  2. "The Series Has Landed": Professor Farnsworth sends his new crew members Fry, Leela, and Bender (with his ditzy intern Amy Wong tagging along) to deliver crane game toys to the Moon. Fry is excited at first, but is disappointed to find the Moon is mostly known as home to a cheesy Disneyland-esque theme park.note 
  3. "I, Roommate": When everyone becomes sick of his disgusting habits around the Planet Express office, Fry moves in with Bender, whose apartment is way too small for a twenty-something slacker and his Robot Buddy. Fry and Bender find a new, roomy apartment, but when Bender's antenna begins wreaking havoc on the satellite TV, Fry must choose between his new home and his metallic pal.
  4. "Love's Labors Lost in Space": On a mission to save doomed animals from a planet that's been strip-mined hollow, Fry, Leela (who has been having trouble finding a man), and Bender are arrested for their actions by a haughty, incompetent space captain named Zapp Brannigan who has his eye on Leela. Along the way, Leela rescues an adorable (but gluttonous) alien she names Nibbler with a strange ability.
