FOX extends 'The Simpsons' run
'The Simpsons' is now set through Season 22 and Episode 493
Viewers will get to enjoy several more seasons of FOX's "The Simpsons" in its pristine new high-definition incarnation.
On Thursday (Feb. 26), FOX announced that "The Simpsons" has been renewed for two addition seasons.
The 44-episode pickup will see "The Simpsons" through its 22nd season and will bring Matt Groening's animated family through to their 493rd episode.
It's been a busy year for "The Simpsons," winner of 24 Emmys, 23 Annies and a Peabody Award.
In May of 2008, "The Simpsons Ride" opened at Universal Studios in both Orlando and Hollywood. The next month, the show's vocal talent signed a new four-year contract, avoiding the sort of unrest that characterized 2004 and 1998 negotiations.
This January, "The Simpsons" began its year-long "Best. 20 Years. Ever." celebration, which will culminate on Jan. 14, 2010 with the 20th anniversary of the series' debut. And on February 15, the show premiered in high-def with a brand-new opening credits sequence.
The next new episode of "The Simpsons," titled "How the Test Was Won" airs this Sunday (March 1) on FOX.
