Fry, a young Everyman, finds himself accidentally transported 1,000 years in the future. Just like right now, life in the future is a complex mix of the wonderful and horrible, where things are still laughable no matter how crazy they get. And against a backdrop of pesky aliens, exasperating robots, and malfunctioning gadgets, people still struggle with the same daily anxieties of life and love . . . and, of course, traffic is still a nightmare! In the third season, Bender inherits a spooky castle; Fry and others find themselves trapped on a planet of Amazonian women ruled by a man-hating computer; Leela fights to save the lives of penguins after the Planet Express ship is involved in an oil spill; and Fry realizes a lifelong dream by dating a Lucy Liu robot. Matt Groening (The Simpsons) is creator and executive producer of Futurama.
