The Simpsons Renewed For Season 29 + 30 – Now The Longest Running TV Series Ever.

With the addition of these two seasons for 2017 & 2018 it will bring the episode count to 669 and, therefore, will overtake Gunsmoke (635 episodes) as the longest running scripted television series to air. It’s hard to believe this all started back in 1989!

Kudos to Matt Groening, Gracie Films and 20th Century Fox Television on the milestone.
