‘The Simpsons’ Renewed For 26th Season

The Simpsons is an institution at this point, holding the record for the longest-running American primetime, scripted television series (it surpassed Gunsmoke four years ago). And now it’s been renewed again by Fox, ensuring a 26th season for Matt Groening’s animated sitcom.

“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,” Fox’s Kevin Reilly said in a statement. “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.”

The Simpsons airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
