Animated News has learned that FOX has recently re-upped their deals with the SIMPSONS and KING OF THE HILL for two more seasons. While I’m not at all suprised that the SIMPSONS will be returning for their 18th and 19th season, I was under the impression that KING OF THE HILL would wrap up after next season (FOX has a lot of episodes in the can since the show is constantly being pre-empted for Football).

Another interesting rumour that has been floating around is that FUTURAMA is about to pull a ‘Family Guy’ and be brought back from the dead (due to the popularity of the DVD’s and episodes on the Cartoon Network). According to Billy West (the voice of Fry on Futurama), Producers Matt Groening and David X. Cohen have reached a deal for 26 more episodes of the series. Whether they’ll air on FOX or the cartoon network remain to be seen.
