The Simpsons renewed for both seasons 33 and 34
Creator Matt Groening has promised "lots of big surprises."
Award-winning animated sitcom The Simpsons has been renewed for a 33rd and 34th season.
Creator Matt Groening announced the news at this year’s Television Critics Association (TCA) tour which took place virtually.
"Everyone at The Simpsons is thrilled to be renewed once more, and we are planning lots of big surprises," he said. "Homer will lose a hair, Milhouse will get contact lenses and Bart will celebrate his tenth birthday for the thirty-third time."
The Simpsons is officially the world’s longest running primetime scripted show with this renewal taking its total episode count to a huge 757.
It will now be on the air until at least 2023 and its landmark 700th episode, titled Manger Things, is to set to air on Sunday 21st March.
The show is currently in the midst of airing its 32nd season which saw Kevin Michael Richardson replace Harry Shearer as the voice of Dr Hibbert.
This follows last year’s announcement that its black characters would no longer be voiced by white actors. Back in September, Alex Désert also took over from Hank Azaria in voicing Homer’s friend and co-worker Carl Carlson.
You can stream the first 31 seasons of The Simpsons on Disney+ now.
