Zombie Simpsons Renewed For Forty-Four More Episodes

Like Father, Like Clown14

♫”If this old clown was found dead in his bed tomorrow/
I’d be in heaven, still doing this show!”♫ – Krusty the Klown

This here blog has been live on the internet for six years and change.  In that time we’ve seen four renewal announcements, including last night’s.  Here are the details:

– two more full production runs of 22 episodes each

– will take the show through Season 28 and give it the first seven episodes of a Season 29(!)

– new guaranteed episode total of 625(!!)

– the next time to look for a renewal announcement will be October-ish of 2016

– the next deadline for a renewal announcement will be May-ish of 2017

Having read through a whole bunch of news reports on this, /Film easily wins the prize for best lead:

In TV years, The Simpsons is already the equivalent of the Grail Knight from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and the series isn’t giving up its post any time soon.

They also took the time to say what everyone’s thinking:

And, let’s face it, you probably only watch the new episodes when Fox breaks out a splashy couch gag by a high-profile artist (yep, welovethose) or when the show makes a big change by killing off a character or featuring a surprising gimmick or guest star. But after more than twenty years, the roster of guests with the power to surprise is pretty small.

The Simpsons is in an unusual position in that the current episodes seem more like reminders for prior seasons and merchandise than the other way around.

As for the next renewal announcement, rubbercat.net/simpsons has it covered.
