It’s the longest-running American sitcom and it sounds like The Simpsons won’t be ending anytime soon either.
Showrunner Al Jean recently responded to a fan on Twitter and said that favorite bad guy Sideshow Bob had not died and would be returning in season 27.
While he didn’t come right out and say that The Simpsons had been renewed for a 27th season, he did note that, “the simpsons will definitely not end in May 2015. Stay tuned…”
Currently in its 26th season, The Simpsons remains a top show for the FOX network. It’s currently the network’s second-highest rated show with an average 3.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.45 million viewers.
With the current state of the network’s schedule, there’s no way they wouldn’t bring back one of their top shows, one that the company also owns and profits from in syndication.
What do you think? Do you still like The Simpsons? How long do you think it should run?
