List of Futurama episodes

Futurama's seventh and final season consisted of 26 episodes split equally across two broadcast seasons: 7-A and 7-B. It premiered on Comedy Central on June 20, 2012. A box set containing the 13 episodes of Season 7-A was released as Futurama: Volume 7 and another box set containing the 13 episodes of Season 7-B will be released as Futurama: Volume 8.[5]

In April 2013, Comedy Central announced that they would not be renewing Futurama for another season, making 7-B the final season of the series. The final episode aired on September 4, 2013.[6]


Comedy Central chose to air some parts of season 7 out of production order. This list is depicted in production order as this is the order used in Volume 7 and Volume 8 and intended by the producers. According to the commentaries in Volume 7, "31st Century Fox" (7ACV11) and "Viva Mars Vegas" (7ACV12) were aired out of the intended production order because Comedy Central wanted to advertise Patrick Stewart being in the broadcast season finale.
