Posted Thu Sep 19, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The next batch of episodes from the cult animated series will be defrosted on Blu-ray in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be releasing 'Futurama: Volume 8' on Blu-ray on December 10.

Pizza boy Philip J. Fry is accidentally cryogenically frozen and awakens 1,000 years later in the 31st century. With no way back, he lands a job at Planet Express, an interplanetary delivery service, and tries to make sense of his new life with his co-worker friends: his 160-year old boss; a beautiful, Cyclopian mutant; a human-sized crustacean; a Rastafarian bureaucrat; a rich, spoiled intern and an alcoholic, sociopathic robot.

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
