Comedy Central has confirmed a June 20 premiere date.
May 14, 2012
Comedy Central has announced a premiere date for Futurama's seventh season. Back in early 2011, the animated series was renewed through 2013 though no details were given on air dates past the current year. Fans can now pencil in Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 10:00pm for the show's return, where it will air back-to-back episodes to kick off Season 7.
Futurama originally began in 1999 on the Fox network after being envisioned by The Simpsons creator, Matt Groening. The show aired on Fox for four seasons, until it was cancelled in 2003. It did, however, manage to live on via reruns on Adult Swim and the Cartoon Network until four new straight-to-DVD films were released between 2007 and 2009. Those films eventually made it to air in the form of 16 half-hour episodes on Comedy Central, which revived the series.
Season 7 of Futurama will run for 13 episodes. The whole original voice cast will return, with special guests Wanda Sykes, George Takei, Dan Castellaneta, Patrick Stewart, and Estelle Harris set to lend their voices over the course of the season.

I agree with you Michael. I was a fan of Harry's Law to. I'm pretty pissed that NBC canceled it. I'm not impressed with any of their other shows.

Futurama is brilliant. I hope it lasts forever, like The Simpsons probably will. Matt Groening can do no wrong!

Save a cartoon seems to be the norm for the networks while show's like Harry's law gets the axe. I do like the loonytoons cartoons of the past, new ones suck. Who is runing the networks?? they all need to be replaced.
