Hulu is bringing Futurama back to life on July 24. Meanwhile, this is the second time the show has been revived since its original launch in 1999.

From there on, Futurama saw four direct-to-video films which were edited into the show’s season 5 on Comedy Central in 2008. Moreover, two more seasons aired there between 2010 and 2013, and the show is now in its eleventh season.

As a recap from previous seasons, the sci-fi animation follows Philip J. Fry, a New York City pizza delivery boy who accidentally gets frozen in 1999. Fry then gets defrosted in 3000 in a futuristic New York, where he makes friends with a hard-drinking robot named Bender. He then falls in love with a Cyclops, Leela.

Our heroes work at the Planet Express Delivery Company, founded by Fry’s descendant, Profession Hubert Farnsworth. Meanwhile, along with accountant Hermes Conrad, assistant Amy Wong and an alien lobster by the name of Dr. John Zoidberg, they have adventures in every corner of the universe.
