The Simpsons Poised for Multi-Season Pickup
Don't change that channel yet.
The Simpsons, TV's longest-running American sitcom, is on tap for at least three more seasons, The New York Post reports.
"The cast is signed for three more years, so I would now say it's about a 90 percent chance we'll come back for at least one of those three," Al Jean, the show's executive producer, said. "I actually think it's better than a 50 percent chance we'll do three more years of this at least."
Should the triple renewal follow through, that would put the animated series at 23 years old - raise your hand if you're younger than it! - which would give it sole bragging rights as the longest-running scripted series, of any genre, ever.
At the moment, The Simpsons is tied with 20-season-long Gunsmoke for the honor. You know they totally want to break the tie.
Are you excited to be staying in Springfield? And will The Simpsons ever end?
