   Futurama, one of my favorite shows to watch, has gone missing. Futurama was a show that was on Fox and then on Comedy Central. Fox cancelled Futurama after their sixth season, and the remaining seasons seven through ten were made on Comedy Central. After it ended in 2013 it made its way to Netflix.

   Last year on July 7, the first six seasons of Futurama were removed from Netflix; this removal caused much uproar from the community. Then, seasons seven through 10 became unavailable on Netflix on January 29th. With the removal of these seasons many people have banded together and started a petition. The petition on Change.org is titled, “If you cancel Futurama, we’ll cancel you, Netflix!” This petition is aimed toward both Netflix and the Fox broadcasting channel. The goal for this petition is 7,500 signatures and the petition has already  managed 6,560 signatures.

 

   While Netflix is removing Futurama from their line up, their top competitor Hulu has acquired all 10 seasons to be available for streaming, which many fans are happy about. This isn’t the only show Hulu has taken from Netflix after its contract was up. Hulu has taken Bob’s Burgers and American Dad. Amazon Instant Video and Tv network Syfy both allow Futurama to be streamed.

 

   While Futurama is removed from Netflix, many fans are still confused due to the show’s creator Matt Groening working for Netflix. Groening is working on a Netflix exclusive show called 

Disenchantment. Adding to the confusion even more, many of the Futurama cast are working on this show, including Billy West (“Fry”), John DiMaggio (“Bender”) with Maurice LaMarche, who voiced multiple characters on the show, and Tress MacNeille, who voiced numerous characters also. She was most famously known for playing “Mom.” Disenchantment is about a princess who is a hardcore drinker. Disenchantment is expected to be available to Netflix users sometime in 2018.
