Hi. I am a little late with the info that appeared in the Futurama Panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2011, but that's because there was not a lot of new info about the upcoming Season 7A and 7B for 2012 and 2013 respectively, but mostly some fun moments with the creators, voice cast and the fans.
[ SPOILER ALERT ]
UPDATE - July 28, 2011 New Sneak Peaks from Futurama Season 7A (and perhaps 7B) that will air in 2012 and 2013
Planet Express will get a new Soda Machine and Bender will impregnate it
Hermes will realize he is less efficient than a machine, so he will chop some unnecessary parts of his body and will become a cyborg
Calculon will compete in the World Acting Championship... to the death!
Leela will be shocked when Zapp looses interest in her and he starts a romance with... her mom!
We will discover that Professor Farnsworth's parents are still alive and living in the Near-Death Star
NEW VIDEO WITH THE SPOILERS OF FUTURAMA IN 2012-2013 + OTHER WORKS THE VOICE CAST HAVE BESIDES FUTURAMA:
Clips from Season 6B (upcoming episodes - 2011)
Zoidberg treating Fry's pin wounds with acupuncture
The Nimbus attacking Earth, and tractor beaming a saran-wrapped New New York into space
The Professor turning into a yeti
Original sneak peaks:
David X. Cohen (or apparently Bill Morrison) mentioned that Futurama was renewed for 2012 and 2013 (we already knew that in March, 2011)
"The mood is better now [..] Pressure's off now that we're in our second life, we didn't expect to be back" was mentioned by David X. Cohen
Billy West said that "cause he (Nixon) drafted me in 1970" when a fan asked "Why does the show hates Richard Nixon?"
From the final canon episode of Futurama Season 6B, "6acv25 - Overclockwise", we knew that Bender gets over-clocked and had no interest in human affairs ... but we didn't know that "Fry and Leela are considering their own future together"
We already knew that the non-canon final episode of Futurama Season 6B, "6acv26 - Reincarnation", had 3 different animation styles: 80's videogames, Fleisher B&W style and the Anime style.
Apparently, besides the Anime part of episode "Reincarnation", the fans also saw a preview of the 80's Videogames and the Fleisher B&W style animation "including some Betty Boop stylings and a Dig Dug sequence"
Apparently there was also footage from the episode "6acv22 - Fry am the Eggman". Professor Farnsworth "realizes that this creature is actually Bonus Vampirus"
It was mentioned that Scruffy will be featured more in the next Season (7A and 7B), and that kinda joking, the producers said that "(he will) get a notary license next year"
The best and funniest part of the Panel, was the Bender Drawing Contest (to the death) between Peter Avanzino and Matt Groening. Matt made many quick sketches and the panel gave them to the fans with Futurama costumes. Peter draw a great image!

In the Simpsons panel, when they asked Matt Groening - "Will there be a Futurama - Simpsons crossover?", he said:
There won't be a crossover but one of the Futurama writers was brought on board to pen the Christmas episode which is set 30 years in the future. Plus "Futurama is real and The Simpsons is just a cartoon"
That sounds kinda interesting and controversial... what do you think?
