Last June we reported that brand new episodes of the animated series Futurama were going to be aired sometime this year on Comedy Central and now we know exactly when. HitFix is reporting that Comedy Central will begin airing these brand new Futurama episodes starting on Thursday, June 24 at 10 PM ET.

Back in July we also reported that the show would receive a 26-episode order of new original episodes and that the entire original voice cast - Katey Segal, Billy West, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche and Tress MacNeille - were returning to the show.

The first new episode slated to air on June 24 will be the first original Futurama episode to air since 2003. The order came off the success of the four straight-to-DVD animated Futurama DVD's: Futurama: Bender's Big Score, Futurama: The Beast With a Billion Backs, Futurama: Bender's Game and Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder.
