NEW YORK, June 2, 2010 -- Prepare to be transported to the year 3000 for the return of Fry, Bender, Leela and the usual cast of twelve-dimensional space monsters. Back by popular demand, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's brilliantly subversive animated sci-fi comedy "Futurama" debuts its sixth season of 12 all-new half-hour episodes on Thursday, June 24 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL, kicking off with a special hour-long block of two back-to-back new episodes. The series also reaches a milestone on Thursday, September 2, when it celebrates its 100th episode.

"Futurama" follows the life of Philip J. Fry (Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who accidentally stumbles into a freezer on December 31, 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later. In his future home of New New York City, Fry goes to work for the Planet Express Intergalactic delivery company, where he befriends Bender (John DiMaggio), a booze-fueled robot, and sets his romantic sights on Leela (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops who enjoys beating him up.

In the premiere episode, "Rebirth," a devastating space battle leaves the delivery crew members reduced to skeletons. Their only hope for survival is the Professor's experimental re-birth device, but its use results in severe sci-fi complications.

In the second episode, Leela and hunky space captain Zapp Brannigan find themselves stranded, alone and naked, on a Garden of Eden-like planet.

Special guest stars this season include Chris Elliot, Craig Ferguson, George Takei, Sergio Aragones, Matt Groening, David X. Cohen, Katee Sackhoff and Mark Mothersbaugh.

Online at comedycentral.com, the new "Futurama" Web site, which launched in May, features episode previews and highlights, mash-up videos of some of the funniest moments from the previous five seasons and an exclusive recap video narrated by Zapp Brannigan. On Wednesday, May 4, the COMEDY CENTRAL Insider Blog launched the "Countdown to Futurama." The countdown features an exclusive sneak preview of season 6 content each day, including stills, storyboards, prop designs, video teases and more. As the season continues, the site will be home to exclusive interviews with the show's cast, as well as with Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. Additionally, there will be a weekly Facebook quiz based on the most recent episode. Users can then share their quiz results with their friends.
