'The Simpsons' hits the big 23
"The Simpsons," the longest-running comedy in TV history, has been renewed for a 23rd season.
Fox on Thursday announced the renewal, which will bring the series total to 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," said executive producer Al Jean.
Fans of the animated series will have something else to celebrate this Thanksgiving when Fox airs the world broadcast premiere of "The Simpsons" movie.
