Comedy Central has decided not to renew Futurama, which means that the 31st-century-set animated comedy will end its 140-episode run on Sept. 4. The final 13 episodes, which represent the second half of season 7, begin airing on June 19 at 10 p.m.
Futurama is no stranger to cancellation, of course: The series aired from 1999 to 2003 before Fox sent Fry & Co. into oblivion. After thriving in reruns on Adult Swim, Futurama was relaunched in 2007 with four-direct-to-DVD movies that Comedy Central ran in half-hour increments as a 16-episode fifth season in 2008-09. Comedy Central subsequently ordered a sixth season of 26 episodes, which aired in 2010-11, and a seventh season of 26 episodes, the first half of which debuted in 2012.
I always liked Futurama. Its one of the few cartoons that could always make me laugh. Its a shame its coming to an end again, it will be missed.

I somehow missed the news last year that "Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes" was canceled. This is quite surprising to me because Avengers EMH was a solid show with great plot lines. It seemed like the last season ended a bit rushed with a Galactus episode. Now it makes sense considering they wouldn't get a third season to do more.
Turns out Avengers EMH was canceled in favor of a new Avengers cartoon "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" that will officially debut Sunday, July 7, at 11 a.m. following a one-hour preview on Sunday, May 26, also at 11 a.m. The new series is a noticeably different animation style and here are two pictures for comparison:

Marvel's other new cartoon is "Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.", which will premiere Sunday, Aug. 11, at 11 a.m.
For the first time ever, the 1978 cult classic manga Space Pirate Captain Harlock is getting its own feature film adaptation. Written by Mobile Suit Gundam UC author Harutoshi Fukui and directed by Appleseed director Shinji Aramaki; Toei Animation made its biggest investment ever, throwing $30 million into the project. The story originally serialized by Leiji Matsumoto, has been updated to fit themes of modern society, and has been given a Hollywood style production. Harlock will release in Japan during the fall. No word on a North American release as of yet.
Superman Unbound is based on Geoff Johns' 2008 Action Comics "Superman: Brainiac" story arc. Braniac invades Earth and its up to Superman to save the world.
DC has had some great animated movies lately, but I always cringe a bit when I see a completely different animation style. But from the looks of this trailer I think the movie turn out great.
Superman Unbound will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download later this year.
The Cartoon Network has released information on its 2013 schedule. Gone from the schedule are the DC Comics-based Young Justice and Green Lantern series that made up the network’s DC Nation Saturday Morning block presumably to be replaced by Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go series, which have been previously announced, but won’t get their debuts until sometime later this year. In particular it is sad to see the stylish Green Lantern series depart. The first DC Comics CGI series was so well done that it brings up the question of whether or not the Green Lantern property will ever be anything more than a niche hit in the comic market with little or no mainstream appel.
It doesn't surprise me that Cartoon Network has canceled Green Lantern, it was a good show but it's overall CGI animation style was always lacking something for me.
What does surprise me is that Cartoon Network has once again canceled a series that has huge potential and great plot lines. Young Justice is a great show. Unfortunately it is now being shelved along side other great series such as Justice League, Justice League Unlimited and Samurai Jack. I never cared much for Cartoon Network after they canceled Megas XLR years ago, but Young Justice brought me back to the network on a weekly basis. Its a shame that is going to be gone.
