Please note this is region 1 but as most of us can play multi-region and R2 isn't available yet, worthy of a post.

After so many years, it brings a smile to my face to see the words "Futurama" and "Season 5" finally together.

i love this show, i have the originals like most people, im sure though there was 20 odd episodes per series? maybe i just thought there were more?

The show had been cancelled and made a comeback so a smaller number made. It 'mirrors' the number of episodes in the 4 films of 3 parts each.

This is the season after the 4 "films." Made by Fox but shown on Comedy Central in the States. These have never been on telly here.

And mine.
They are also much better than the films (or the edited versions) and well worth watching, though not quite as good as the proper classic episodes.

Are you asking us or telling us?


Based on the episode list in Amazon product information, this is season 6 not 'series 5' as stated in the deal title.

That's because they're counting the films as a season on there for whatever reason.

You can get it from third party sellers on Amazon UK for £15.40 inc postage. I think I'll wait for the Region 2 release though.

Futurama rocks, best animated show on tv for me.

Anyone know if/when this is released in region 2?

That'll depend on whether they are trying to sell it to a British TV network or not.

I cannot believe you people, 17 replies and no one has yet put the only comment that is allowed in Futurama threads?!?!?!

What we know as "Season 4", was actually split into two seasons in America so for them this is Season 6. Either way I wish they'd hurry up and get it on tv here!!! It's ridiculous - or at least get us a Blu Ray release!

Will wait to see if the come out over here hope so anyway.

Bite my shiny metal ass.

Does anyone know if this will play on PS3 and/or Xbox 360?

(I mean UK versions, before the pendants come out saying, "yes, on the US version".)

Not voting either way as its a good deal, but not R2 and its on hotUKdeals..

I did not know that, that's strange

On the plus side for those in the know, the latter half of this season (another 13 eps) begins airing in the US next month.

And for those even more in the know they ordered another 26 episodes for 2012 and 2013. The 13 you mention will be season 6 and these as 7&8. How's that for good news everybody?
