Fox has just announced that a handful of its shows are returning. One of them is the longest running animated show “The Simpsons”. The said show will be returning to television this October.
The recent season of “The Simpsons” just ended in May 2017. It kicked off last year in September and ran for 22 episodes. Fox has finally confirmed that “The Simpsons” Season 29 will be happening and it has been slated to start airing on October 1. The new season will be airing another set of 22 new episodes featuring everyone’s favorite family.
“The Simpsons” Season 29 marks another milestone for Fox and the sitcom itself. The new season will reportedly surpass “Gunsmoke” for having the most episodes in a scripted prime-time television series ever. Aside from that, fans will be treated to a cameo from Norman Lear as he squeezes in one of his TV show’s theme songs in the new season. NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will also be appearing in a cameo on the upcoming season of “The Simpsons” to help out Homer in a certain episode.
Fox has actually renewed the animated sitcom for a 30th season as well and the show will be extended until 2019 because of the renewal. “The Simpsons” Season 29 will air every Sunday at 8:00 pm. Fox has placed the series premiere of “Ghosted” on the Sunday slot as well, just after an episode of “The Simpsons”.
Aside from the highly acclaimed sitcom, “The Simpsons”, Fox unveiled a whole lot more for its 2017 line up. “Empire” will return for a new season on Sept. 27 after the season premiere of “Star”. “Empire” is a musical drama and the highest rated show on Fox. Meanwhile, new series such as the Marvel television drama series, “The Ghosted”, will be making its debut on Oct. 29.
