News - The Simpsons Renewed For Two More Seasons On Fox

The Simpsons Renewed For Two More Seasons On Fox

The Simpsons, which is already one of the longest-running TV shows in history, will continue to get new episodes for the foreseeable future. Fox has officially renewed the show for Seasons 31 and 32. This will take the show up to an unthinkable 713 episodes.

According to Deadline, Fox also signed deals with the cast members for Seasons 31 and 32, though terms were not disclosed. For its current 30th season, The Simpsons continues to be a ratings success. As of January 20, individual episodes were reaching an audience of 7.5 million viewers on average across all platforms. Fans might agree that the quality of the show has declined in recent years, but it's clear the show and wider franchise remains wildly popular.

The Simpsons' multi-decade run hasn't been without issues and controversy. Comedian Hari Kondabolu's 2017 documentary, The Problem With Apu, explores Apu as a character and focuses on him as a stereotype. Series creator Matt Groening responded to the controversy by saying "people love to pretend they're offended."

Outside of the TV series, The Simpsons Movie was released in 2007 and there is talk about another one. There are also Simpsons theme park attractions and a multitude of merchandise like Duff beer.

In other news, Disney is buying many of 20th Century Fox's assets, and that means the company will assume ownership of The Simpsons going forward.
