The Simpsons

Fox Entertainment has handed early renewals to long-running animated series The Simpsons, Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers.

The three shows, all produced by Disney Television Studios’ 20th Television Animation, have each received two additional seasons to take them through the 2024-25 broadcast cycle.

The renewals guarantee seasons 14 and 15 for Bob’s Burgers, the 22nd and 23rd seasons of Family Guy and the 35th and 36th seasons for The Simpsons, extending its standing as the longest-running scripted series in television history.

Created by Matt Groening, The Simpsons first debuted in 1989 and follows the stories of the titular family and other residents of the US town of Springfield.

Family Guy was created by Seth MacFarlane and launched in 1999, following the Griffin family of Quahog, while Bob’s Burgers, created by Loren Bouchard, debuted in 2011, centering on the Belchers and their burger restaurant.

“Across 750 episodes of The Simpsons, 400 episodes of Family Guy, and 250 episodes of Bob’s Burgers, we couldn’t be more proud to continue delivering these three animated hits with the most brilliant teams in animation,” said Marci Proietto, EVP of 20th Television Animation.

“Our relationship with Fox over the past three decades has allowed this trio of shows to thrive, grow and deliver immeasurable moments of hilarious and irreverent entertainment for fans, and we are absolutely thrilled that Fox is doubling down on each of these iconic shows.”
