‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Futurama’ Crossover Episode in the Works

No one puts Futurama in the corner, not even Comedy Central.

While Fry and the gang were recently sent to that great spaceship landfill in the sky (also known as cancellation) for a second time earlier this year, it was announced at Comic-Con that Futurama and The Simpsons‘ creator Matt Groening will bring his two iconic animated worlds together for a crossover episode.

EW revealed the episode is being recorded this August, and will air either as The Simpsons‘ season 25 finale in May 2014 or as the season 26 premiere. The plot will involve robot Bender coming back from the future to kill Bart and stop him from screwing up the future for everyone else. Futurama cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr and Maurice LaMarche will all be heard in the episode.

This is the second crossover episode of The Simpsons announced it recent weeks. The family will also meet up with The Family Guy crew in 2014

Futurama‘s final season is set to conclude this September on Comedy Central, while The Simpsons season 25 premiere is scheduled to air Sunday, September 28th at 8/7c on Fox.
