‘The Simpsons’ Renewed For 26th Season


The Simpsons has been renewed for a 26th season next year.

The show began airing on FOX in 1989 after starting out life as cartoon shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show in 1987.

FOX’s Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said: “For more than a quarter of a century, The Simpsons has captured the hearts and minds of fans in a way that transcends ages, languages and cultures. This groundbreaking series is not only the longest-running scripted show in television history, it’s one of the greatest sitcoms of our time, and I’m looking forward to yet another landmark season.”

Season 25 began last Sunday. Guest stars this season include Daniel Radcliffe, Gordon Ramsay, Stan Lee, Eva Longoria and Zach Galifianakis. Director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) shot the opening sequence for this year’s Treehouse of Horror episode.

Executive producer Al Jean has said that the show’s writers are “working on a script where a character will pass away” and the episode “may air in season 26”.

  1. The Simpsons gets renewed this long and Futurama gets canceled over and over again. I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
