Fox Renews “The Simpsons” For 26th Season
Fox announced Friday that it has renewed “The Simpsons” for a record-breaking 26th season, making it the longest-running scripted show in TV history.
Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly issued a statement which read, “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. 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.”
This current season will boast an impressive lineup of stars lending their voices, including Eva Longoria, Amy Poehler, Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk, Will Arnett and Elisabeth Moss.
Also in Season 25, a major “Simpsons” character will be killed off the show. “I’ll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character,” executive producer Al Jean told reporters during a conference call, “but I won’t say who it is.”
