The animated comedy will stay on the air until at least 2023.
March 3, 2021
FOX announced another multi-year pickup for The Simpsons today, renewing the veteran sitcom for Seasons 33 and 34. The animated comedy is already the longest-running scripted series on prime time television, and today's news further extends its already-impressive record.
Today's two-season order will take The Simpsons to over 750 episodes by the end of Season 34 in 2023. With the Sunday night staple continuing to pull in healthy ratings, there are no indication that Season 34 will be its last.
On the air since 1989, The Simpsons franchise is truly a juggernaut in so many ways. The series boasts generations of loyal fans, has won scores of awards - including over 30 Emmys, has countless types of merchandise, video games, and even a hit movie. As far as critical praise, it has received top recognition from numerous outlets, including being named the greatest TV show ever in the 2016 book "TV (The Book)" and Best Show of the 20th Century by Time Magazine.
Before the movie-
Marge would get home, Homer would run through the garage and run right through the door to avoid getting hit.
After the movie-
Marge hits Homer, thus throwing him through the door. Lol
Not just move on, but you'd think they'd be tired of being called racists every other week because of characters they voice. Money must be good if they are willing to take the prison pounding of cancel culture.
I think this is a business decision after all. Animation is much easier to do then live action during the pandemic. And as long as no one of the major cast dies, this could make 40 seasons or more.
Just like every other show, if you don't like it, don't watch. It's not as if a possible replacement would mark the renaissance of television.
