Comedy Central has bought up the rights to produce and air new episodes of Futurama.

The cable channel is bringing back the series, from Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, which first aired on Fox from 1999-2003. The Hollywood Reporter says at least 13 new episodes will be produced for the first time since the series ended; the new batch is part of a deal the cable network made with 20th Century Fox Television last year to pick up syndicated rights to the show's 72 episode library.

Comedy Central also has an option to air any new episodes produced; no word on when the new episodes of Futurama will air.
