Good News, Everyone! Futurama Headquarter Found in Germany

Fans of the hit animated comedy Futurama may have had to say goodbye to the beloved series, but a fan on Reddit appears to have stumbled upon a building hidden away in Germany that draws a remarkable resemblance to the show’s very important Planet Express headquarter.

The resemblance is just too similar to call this one a coincidence, but in its current form, Professor Farnsworth  must’ve done some hefty cleaning to get the building into shape.

Located in the German town of Köthen, the building is located across the street from the train station, and back in the day served as a water tower for the once popular East German steam trains. Creators of the show had said the Planet Express building was inspired by Belgium’s Cointe Observatory, but it’s hard to argue against this German resemblance.
