STILL ANIMATED AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!

FOX RENEWS "THE SIMPSONS" FOR INCREDIBLE 23RD SEASON

FOX has renewed THE SIMPSONS, the longest-running comedy in television history, for an incredible 23rd season, bringing the series total to an impressive 515 episodes. THE SIMPSONS airs Sundays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

"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 Al Jean, Executive Producer, THE SIMPSONS.

This season, America's favorite family continues to entertain us with their wild and outlandish adventures as Maggie goes missing, Homer becomes a premier hairdresser, Moe's Tavern is converted into an ultra-trendy bar and the family debates the best way to spend the holiday season. Guest stars paying Springfield a visit in upcoming episodes include actors Halle Berry, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Rachel Weisz, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Alyson Hannigan and Joe Mantegna; basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; lifestyle guru Martha Stewart; and pop sensation Katy Perry, who appears in a live-action sequence alongside SIMPSONS puppets. Additionally, the World Broadcast Premiere of "The Simpsons Movie" will air Thanksgiving night, Thursday, Nov. 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), on FOX.

THE SIMPSONS immediately struck a chord with viewers across the country over 20 years ago as it poked fun of itself and everything in its wake. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and the family members have become television icons.

In January 2010, THE SIMPSONS celebrated their 450th episode and the conclusion of the "Best. 20 Years. Ever.," a year-long global 20th anniversary celebration culminating 20 years from the original series premiere. In May 2009, THE SIMPSONS were commemorated on 44-cent First-Class Mail stamps. In 2007, the long-awaited "The Simpsons Movie" was released and went on to gross $526 million worldwide to date. Additionally, "The Simpsons Ride" opened in May 2008 at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL, and Hollywood, CA.

THE SIMPSONS was nominated for five Emmys in 2010, including Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Children's Nonfiction Program for "The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice!" produced and directed by Morgan Spurlock, and took home two awards, including one for guest voice Anne Hathaway for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance. The critically praised series has been bestowed with numerous honors, including a Peabody Award, 27 Emmy Awards, 27 Annie Awards, five Genesis Awards, nine International Monitor Awards and seven Environmental Media Awards. THE SIMPSONS holds the Guinness Book of World Records titles for Longest-Running Primetime Animated Television Series and Most Guest Stars Featured in a Television Series. Recognized as a pop culture icon, Homer Simpson's annoyed grunt - "D'oh!" - is an official word in the Oxford English Dictionary, and THE SIMPSONS has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With record-breaking retail sales, THE SIMPSONS reigns as one of the best-selling TV DVD properties of all time.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, Al Jean, Ian Maxtone-Graham and Matt Selman are the executive producers. Film Roman, a Starz Media Company, is the animation house.
