Fox has handed out a two-season renewal for animated hit TV series, The Simpsons. The renewal indicates that the series from Al Jean and Matt Groening will extend through season 28, said the Hollywood Reporter.
This marks the latest multi-season renewal for TV's longest ­running hit. Following ­prolonged negotiations with its voice cast, the network reached new deals and picked up the show for two ­additional seasons in 2011.
|With the additional season order, the animated family comedy, which follows the misadventures of Homer, Bart and company, will reach a staggering 625 total issues. The early pick-up also means there will be no interruption in the show's production ­process. The show is ­currently in its 26th season.
