Beloved animated comedy Futurama returned for a new season on Hulu with a stacked cast that will hook fans immediately. 

After its second cancellation back in 2013, Futurama has risen from the dead yet again for at least 20 more episodes, with the producing team "really hopeful and optimistic that [they'll] get to do more." 

Most of the series' original cast is back for the revival, even though it took some controversial contract negotiations for some of the shoe's stars to get there. 

So with Season 11 of Futurama finally ready to stream on Hulu, here is every actor fans can expect to see in the sci-fi satire.
