Tonight, in the Futurama episode “31st Century Fox,” Bender will become a fox hunting enthusiast, joining the Huntmaster on a high-falutin’ outing. The voice of the Huntmaster will be unmistakable to fans of a certain Star Trek show about to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Yes, the Huntmaster will be voiced by Sir Patrick Stewart. Expect some fireworks when Bender, dismayed that the Huntmaster and his fox hunters are on the trail of a robot fox, attempts to sabotage the next hunt, only to become the hunted.
“31st Century Fox” will kick off Futurama’s one-hour/two-episode midseason finale. The episode will premiere tonight at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
