John DiMaggio A Voice Actor Has Joined The Futurama Animated Series

John DiMaggio

John DiMaggio, who portrays Bender in the long-running and recently resurrected animated series Futurama, will join the rest of the cast for new episodes on Hulu. DiMaggio had not signed a deal to return to the program when it was revealed on February 9, but he has now. Regular cast members include Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herman.

Why didn’t John DiMaggio join the rest of the original Futurama voice cast?

A lot of Futurama fans voiced their disappointment that DiMaggio was not cast in the program, which the actor mirrored on his social media pages. On February 15, DiMaggio sent a tweet saying,

“Bender is a part of my soul, and nothing in this is intended to offend the fans or my Futurama family.” It’s all about self-esteem. And, to be honest, I’m bored of a business that has gotten way too corporate and exploits an artist’s time and skill.”

While West and Sagal accepted Hulu’s pay proposals, DiMaggio thought it was too low and responded, resulting in a standoff in which no side seemed to advance. He feels that the whole cast should be paid more. Those discussions seem to have come to an end. After his contract was settled on Tuesday, DiMaggio was back in Bender mode. He went to Twitter and said, Now that the cast has been reassembled, let’s take a look at the original voice actors who will be returning for future episodes.
