‘The Simpsons’ renewed for two more seasons

Two season renewal will take the animated sitcom up to a massive 625 episodes

The Simpsons has been renewed for another two seasons.

Fox announced yesterday (May 4) that it has ordered Seasons 27 and 28 of the long-running animated sitcom, which will take The Simpsons to a massive 625 episodes since it began in 1989. The show is already the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated programme and the longest-running American scripted primetime series of all time.

Homer Simpson said in a Fox press release: “I’ve outlasted Letterman, Jon Stewart and ‘McDreamy’, because I have something they don’t: a costly 200-donut-a-day addiction.”

Season 26 of The Simpsons is airing on Fox now and will conclude with its 22nd episode on May 17. Season 27 will then begin on Fox this autumn. Lena Dunham is set to guest star in the Season 27 premiere accompanied by her Girls castmates.

The Simpsons guest stars during Season 26 have included Pharrell Williams, Nick Offerman, Richard Branson, Glenn Close, Willem Dafoe and Sarah Silverman.
