FOX has announced another multi-year pickup for The Simpsons, renewing the veteran comedy for Seasons 35 and 36. The animated series is already the longest-running scripted show on prime time television, and today's news further extends its impressive record.

Today's two-season order will take The Simpsons past the 750-episode mark, which it will reach by the end of its current 34th season. With the Sunday night staple continuing to pull in healthy ratings, there are no indications that Season 36 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.
