“The Simpsons” has been renewed for a Season 33 and 34 at Fox.
At the conclusion of Season 34, slated for 2023, the iconic animated sitcom will have produced 757 episodes total. The landmark 700th episode, “Manger Things,” will air on March 21.
“The Simpsons” is the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, having surpassed “Gunsmoke” during its 29th season. The show was honored with a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2000.
“Everyone at ‘The Simpsons’ is thrilled to be renewed once more, and we are planning lots of big surprises. Homer will lose a hair, Milhouse will get contact lenses, and Bart will celebrate his tenth birthday for the thirty-third time,” Matt Groening, creator of the cartoon kingpin added in a statement.

I stopped watching it about 5 years ago or so. It did seem to improve from the 2000s to 2010, but I just got tired of it. Less laughs than the first 8 years of shows although I occasionally hear about an episode.

Unbelievable. This still must be a big cash cow for Fox, but I don't understand how it could be. The quality of the writing has rapidly declined over the years and it's basically been reduced to the level of a Saturday morning cartoon.
Maybe they'll finally have Lisa killed (murdered by Nelson? or maybe by Martin? or maybe by Milhouse?) and do all of season 33 without her until the last episode where Professor Frink invents a time machine and goes back to prevent Lisa's death.
