Will The Simpsons Ever Be Killed?

The Simpsons FOX

Other comedies are sure to be yellow with envy over this news: Fox has once again renewed The Simpsons, further solidifying the Springfield crew's place in TV history as the longest-running comedy. Ever.

The upcoming 23rd season (just think about that for a second) will bring Bart, Homer, and the rest of the Simpsons crew up to a whopping total of 515 episodes.

"Like many 22-year-olds, The Simpsons is extremely happy remaining at home, on Fox, and hopes it doesn't have to go out into the real world for many years to come," Al Jean, the show's exec producer, said.

The new season will continue to serve as a pit stop for the who's who of smart Hollywood, with Halle Berry, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Rachel Weisz, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Alyson Hannigan, Martha Stewart and Katy Perry among the stars set to guest star. For her part, Perry will appear in a live-action sequence with Simpsons puppets. No points for guessing the reference.
