Expect at-least two more seasons of ‘The Simpsons,’ FOX confirmed today that the network has renewed the long-running series for its 27th and 28th seasons. When the 28th season ends, the series will have hit 625 episodes.
“I’ve outlasted Letterman, Jon Stewart and ‘McDreamy,’ because I have something they don’t: a costly 200-donut-a-day addiction,” said Homer Simpson. The show has become the longest-running scripted show in television history, and has been part of our culture since 1990. The show is currently airing its record-setting 26th season.
Since the show began, THE SIMPSONS has won 31 Emmy Awards, 31 Annie Awards, a 2015 People’s Choice Award, was the first animated series to win a Peabody Award and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for the theatrical short “The Longest Daycare.” On the next all-new episode, “Bull-E” airing this Sunday, May 10 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Bart (Nancy Cartwright) gets bullied at the school dance, so Marge (Julie Kavner) convinces the town to pass anti-bullying legislation. Homer (Dan Castellaneta) then gets arrested for bullying and sent to rehab, where he is treated by therapist/reformed bully Dr. Raufbold (guest voice Albert Brooks).
THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. The Gracie Films Worldwide Brand Division develops and produces the licensed content for the series. Film Roman, a Starz company, is the animation house.
