‘Futurama’ Finale Gets Online Companion Show Hosted by Chris Hardwick


Chris Hardwick, who already hosts companion shows to The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, is adding another to his list.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll help send off Futurama on Wednesday with an online show before and after the series finale of the animated series. They’ll stream on Comedy Central’s Futurama web page and on the Nerdist YouTube page beginning at 6:30 p.m. PT/9:30 p.m. ET.

The first half-hour episode will feature series creator Matt Groening, Executive Producer David X. Cohen, and stars Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Phil LaMarr and Lauren Tom. They’ll be joined in the second episode, immediately after the finale, by Co-Executive Producer Patric M. Verrone and Supervising Director Peter Avanzino.

    Thank goodness. With Talking Dead waiting for the New Walking Dead Season, and the Nerdist podcast requiring internet and speakers, and the nightly Comedy Central late night talk show not yet on, and with no Attack of the Show or Web Soup, and with the Nerdist website only updating every few minutes, and the BBC only giving him one show, and with appearances on Felicia Day’s or Wil Wheaton’s or all of the friends of his’ sites, or appearing on the Doctor Who review shows, or the fact conventions only happen on weekends, and his standup requires being live, and the Meltdown Studio being in LA – it’ll be good to see him on screen for Futurama – a project he was intimately involved with. There’s no one else who could host it.
