The Simpsons has been officially picked up for seasons 33 and 34, meaning the show will air at least until 2022-2023 for a record-breaking total of 757 episodes. Since its debut in 1989, the show has been a cultural phenomenon. Show creator Matt Groening expressed his excitement at the news, teasing fans with potential storylines.
“Homer will lose a hair, Milhouse will get contact lenses, and Bart will celebrate his tenth birthday for the thirty-third time.”
The renewal comes as no surprise as The Simpsons has consistently drawn strong ratings. With the show available on the Disney+ Hotstar, more viewers are discovering it or catching up on the old seasons. While there have been doubts about a renewal for the show in the past and a recent decline in quality according to most fans, The Simpsons continues to remain part of the cultural zeitgeist.
