Matt Groening likely doesn’t have to work again for the rest of his life if he chose to do so. He doesn’t have much to do with the day-to-day operation of The Simpsons at this point, but the show is still chugging along with season 27. And then there’s Futurama. A darling show that bounced around from network to network for some 15 years, earning some cult favor and producing quality content. He’s got a lot of success under his belt with little left to prove.

So when you hear Matt Groening is in talks to work on a new series with Netflix, you pay attention. Variety is reporting that Groening is apparently hashing out a deal for a series that would feature two 10-episode seasons, with little more to offer:

Details of the project are being kept under wraps. Netflix is understood to be considering a two-season order of 10 episode apiece. That could be prompted by the long lead time needed for animation production. A larger episode order upfront would allow Netflix to better amortize the production costs. It’s unclear if an outside production entity is involved with the project.
