After decades on-air, "The Simpsons" has become an integral part of American culture. Thanks to its incredible staying power, there are enough episodes to binge watch for days on end -- and die-hard fans will soon have a chance to do exactly that.
In the spirit of the holidays (and to commemorate the longevity of the iconic cartoon), FXX will be airing every episode from the show's 27-season run in successive, chronological order. The 600-episode marathon will begin at 12:00 PM ET on Thursday, November 24, and will conclude 12:00 AM ET on Wednesday, December 6. For those wondering, that's a 300-hour marathon -- approximately 13 days. That makes it the longest TV marathon in history.
This is the longest "The Simpsons" marathon ever and surpasses FXX's previous 552-episode marathon that ran in 2014. The "Every. Simpsons. Ever." marathon, as it's been dubbed, is also a tribute to the creative talent that has made the Simpsons such a well-loved classic.
"Doing this is an act of true fandom," said FX Networks President and COO Chuck Saftler, "honoring Jim Brooks, Matt Groening, Al Jean, all the writers, artists, directors, people behind the scenes and the ridiculously talented voice actors who have brought this series to life and kept it at the pinnacle of artistic excellence these past 27+ seasons."
And don't forget that new episodes of the show are still being made. Season 28 of "The Simpsons" will debut at 8:00 PM ET, Sept. 25 on Fox and will feature comedian Amy Schumer in a guest role.
