    "FOX has picked up THE SIMPSONS for a historic 26th season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

    “For more than a quarter of a century, THE SIMPSONS has captured the hearts and minds of fans in a way that transcends ages, languages and cultures,” said Reilly. “This groundbreaking series is not only the longest-running scripted show in television history, it’s one of the greatest sitcoms of our time, and I’m looking forward to yet another landmark season.”"

    Very surprising how few episodes in total have been made in 25 seasons, I was thinking it would have to be near 800 by now but was way off.

    The 22 to 23 episodes a season does seem small when you compare it to shows such as Gunsmoke who produced 35+ a season in it's first 10 years.
