Speaking to TMZ recently, David X. Cohen revealed that Coolio was able to reprise his role as Kwanzaa-bot for the series and recorded new music for the character as well. Coolio first appeared as Kwanzaa-bot in Season 4 of Futurama, in an episode entitled “A Tale of Two Santas.” He would appear again in the Season 7 episode “The Future Holiday Spectacular,” as well as in a cameo role in the Futurama film Bender’s Big Score.

“Coolio was one of my favorite guests,” Cohen said. “He was always totally upbeat and genuinely enjoyed coming in to record as his character Kwanzaa-bot.” Cohen also said that the episode in which Coolio appears will be dedicated to him.

The Futurama revival has been picked up for 20 new episodes, which will air in 2023 with production expected to begin soon. The original seasons of the series are available to stream now on Hulu. The show is produced by 20th Television and executive produced by Matt Groening and Cohen. Rough Draft Studios is set to handle the animation.
