John DiMaggio is a well-known artist for his unique voice. John has captivated the hearts of his admirers with his incredible talent. Fans of Futurama will be delighted to discover that John DiMaggio has joined the Hulu revival.
John DiMaggio, the voice of “Futurama,” has finally signed on to the Hulu relaunch of the beloved animated sci-fi comedy series, bringing the #Bendergate story to a close.
“I’M BACK, BABY! So damn grateful for the love and support of fans and colleagues alike during this whole time (especially my wife, Kate), and I cannot wait to get back to work with my ‘Futurama’ family. #Bendergate is officially over, so put it on the back of a shelf behind Xmas decorations, or maybe in that kitchen drawer with all of the other crap you put in there like old unusable crazy glue, or maybe even put it in a jar you save farts in. Whatever floats your boat, I don’t care, you get the picture. I’M BACK, BABY! BITE MY SHINY METAL ASS!”
Fans were disappointed when DiMaggio’s name was not included on the list of returning original cast members when the revival was revealed in February. DiMaggio praised the fans for their support and later stated that he and the rest of the cast deserved to be paid more to return for the show than what was provided. After the news of John’s joining, series creator Matt Groening and executive producer David X. Cohen congratulated him subsequently.
“From the moment John DiMaggio auditioned last century, we knew we had our Bender. So congrats to everyone at ‘Futurama.’ We’re all back, baby!”
“John DiMaggio may be a great robot, but he’s also a great human being. Not many people or machines can say that. For the fourth time, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime thrill to be back with our entire original cast and the phenomenal animators of Rough Draft Studios!”
This is the second time the show has been revived since it first premiered in 1999. Reruns of the sitcom found fresh life on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim schedule and on DVD after its initial four-season run on Fox. After that, four direct-to-video features were made, which were then re-edited into a fifth season, which began airing on Comedy Central in 2008. Between 2010 and 2013, Comedy Central aired two further seasons, each with 26 episodes.
As a result, the fans have gotten what they desired. Hopefully, it will arrive shortly with a bang, but until then, stay tuned to Thirsty for more information.
