A few years ago, it seemed that the legendary animation The Simpsons was finally coming to a natural end. Fast forward those few years, and it continues to outstrip many other long-running shows, and has today been renewed by FOX for another two seasons.
The show will now run into its 27th and 28th seasons, and will reach the huge milestone of over 625 episodes by the end of the 28th season. Deadline reports that it was never in any real danger of not being renewed, and that it was only ever a case of renewing the contracts of its voice cast that ever put a “spanner” in the words.
TheSimpsons still gets very decent ratings, with an average US audience base of 7.7 million over the various platforms the show now plays across. In addition, it is expected that Fox’s other big animation, Family Guy, will also join the likes of Bob’s Burgers, New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine with a new season later in the year.
