Futurama Season 6 premiere dateAs you know, Comedy Central ordered 26 episodes to be produced as a new Futurama Season (if you didn't know, you're not following @slurmed on twitter). Recent news from Comedy central Insider confirm that Season 6 (Broadcast Season 7) will feature 12 of those 26 episodes

That's not all, an hour later, according to HitFlix's Comedy Central sources, the specific release date will be on Thursday, June 24th, 2010 @ 10 pm. Way earlier, we knew June was the target date of the premiere (later Phil LaMarr said in an interview that the release date could be near the Summer/Fall of 2010) so this was not entirely official until now.

Now we can wonder if Broadcast Season 8 (aka Season 7) will hold the other 14 episodes. or depending on how good Season 6 does, order more episodes.. pleeease.. In other early interview (sorry, link missing) David X Cohen said that perhaps Season 7 could premiere in 2011, but I think it all depends of Season 6 ratings.

Svip from The Infosphere made me notice something. If this new Season has 12 episodes, the last one will air in September of 2010, giving us 2 months until December, and like CGEF contacts said, the 1st episode of season 8 will be an Anthology of Interest Xmas one that will air for the holidays.

What I wanted to say over here (I made the strike through paragraph confusing) is that depending on how good Broadcast Season 7 does (the first 12 episodes), Comedy Central could be asking for more episodes (Broadcast Season 9) even when Broadcast Season 8 has not started yet, because if they don't ask for more episodes soon enough, we will have to wait a long time (once again) for more Futurama.
