I’m sure many of our readers were excited by the news that Futurama had been commissioned for a new season. But it may come with a surprising change: according to Entertainment Weekly there’s been a disagreement over salaries, and as a result the voice actors will be recast.
I’m just hoping this doesn’t turn out to be for real, and we’re able to enjoy new Futurama without the jarring experience of all the characters sounding different even though they would probably get a good joke out of it in the first episode.
THAT would be COMPLETELY BOGUS.
I’m hoping this is just a stunt by Fox to try and get the voice actors to drop their salary demands, and that Fox blinks first.
I’d like to think they realize that the voices make the show, but this is Fox….
