There was much rejoicing when word went out that Comedy Central was bringing Futurama back to the airwaves for a new 26-episode season. Then that enthusiasm got dropped into a black hole when salary negotiations hit a snag and Fox threatened to hire new voice actors, even putting out a casting call for replacements. Bender without John Di Maggio? Fry without Billy West? Say it ain’t so!

It ain’t so. Apparently somebody enlisted the talents of the Hypnotoad, because The Toronto Star is reporting that Fox has just signed a deal for at least three of the original cast to return to Matt Groening’s sci-fi comedy. No word on who the holdouts are, but a Fox spokesman told The Star that the rest of the cast was expected to have a deal soon.
