Fox isn’t ready to say good-bye to The Simpsons anytime soon. The network just announced today that the longest-running scripted series in history will be back for seasons 27 and 28. Commenting on the renewal, Homer Simpson was quoted as saying, “I’ve outlasted Letterman, Jon Stewart and ‘McDreamy,’ because I have something they don’t: a costly 200-donut-a-day addiction.”
The animated series has earned 31 Emmys, 31 Annie Awards, and made history as the first animated television series to win a Peabody Award.
The Simpsons reside in the town of Springfield. Homer (Dan Castellaneta) works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant; Marge (Julie Kavner) tries to keep the peace in her family; Bart (Nancy Cartwright) is the mischievous 10-year-old hellion; eight-year-old Lisa (Yeardley Smith) is the intelligent, saxophone-playing, vegetarian member of the family; and baby Maggie conveys emotions via pacifier sucks.
