Futurama was in a way an answer to the question “What will come after the Simpsons?”. The only thing however is that it came during the Simpsons and went out before the Simpsons. The show lasted from 1999 to 2013 and created a lot of memorable characters but wasn’t quite able to keep going with the arc or keep all of the actors since a couple of them had other engagements to make and it was unclear just where the show was going from a certain point. Enough people liked it that the show could have kept going, but for one reason or another shows like this need something extra to stick around or they tend to go the way of the dodo. Be that as it may, there were a lot of interesting and colorful characters in the show that will no doubt be remembered fondly by a lot of fans.
