Fox Renews The Simpsons for Season 26
It’s official: The Simpsons will outlive us all.
Fox has renewed the still-potent ‘toon for a 26th season, the network announced Friday.
Last Sunday’s Season 25 premiere ranked as the No. 1 entertainment program of the night among adults 18-49 and was up 12 percent year-over-year.
“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,” said Fox prez Kevin Reilly. “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.”
