TVLine Items: The Simpsons Invade FXX, First Look at Glee Vet's HBO Series Looking and More
Homer, Bart and the rest of the Simpsons gang will soon call FXX home.
Beginning in August 2014, the newly-launched network will acquire all 24 seasons of the iconic Fox staple (that’s 530 episodes, for those wondering). By that September, FXX will gain access to The Simpsons’ current 25th season, just as its 26th go-’round premieres on Fox.
Episodes of the animated smash will also be available via FXNOW, the cabler’s soon-to-be-launched mobile viewing app.
