Fox Renews ‘The Simpsons’ for Season 33 or 34

Veteran “The Simpsons” has been picked up by Fox for two additional seasons, taking it through seasons 33 and 34. “It’s a sincere pleasure to announce the two-season pickup for ‘The Simpsons.’ We keep hoping that, eventually, they’ll get it right,” said Charlie Collier, CEO, FOX Entertainment. “Profound respect for and congratulations to Matt, Jim, Al and the many other wonderful partners working really hard to finally elevate ‘The Tracey Ullman Show.’ As they say, ‘practice makes perfect.’”

“Original, brilliant, outrageously funny, prophetic…there aren’t enough positive adjectives to describe this genius comedy which continues to entertain viewers of all ages,” commented Dana Walden, Chairman of Entertainment, Walt Disney Television. “Jim Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean lead a team of all-stars who hold such a high bar for themselves and leap over it with each spectacular episode. On behalf of everyone at our studio and the millions of fans of ‘The Simpsons’ around the world, I want to thank our wonderful partners at Fox for making this a truly great day.”

Debuting on December 17, 1989, “The Simpsons” will be hitting the 700-episode mark on March 21.
