FOX Renews THE SIMPSONS for 23rd Season; Will Reach 500th Episode

In a move that will land them over 500 episodes when all is said and done, Fox has announced via press release their renewal of their long-running animated comedy series The Simpsons for a 23rd season. It’s hard to believe it’s been multiple decades since the wild antics of Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie first hit the airwaves. Of course, I honestly can’t say I’ve watched a single episode of The Simpsons, at least beyond the annual Treehouse of Terror, for years now. While I maintain that The Simpsons have lost a bit of their edge, they paved the way for more adult animated fare and without those yellow citizens there would be no South Park, or Family Guy.

Remember, we told you about all the forthcoming guest stars appearing through the current running 22nd season of the historic animated comedy including Ricky Gervais, Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm and even Katy Perry who’s appearing in a live-action portion of The Simpsons complete with the citizens of Springfield taking the form of puppets. With this new order for yet another season on Fox, you can be sure there’s plenty more of The Simpsons coming in the future.
