Fox renews 'The Simpsons' for 23rd season

MUMBAI: US broadcaster Fox has renewed The Simpsons, the longest-running comedy in television history, for a 23rd season, bringing the series total to 515 episodes. 

The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean said, "Like many 22-year-olds, The Simpsons is extremely happy remaining at home, on Fox, and hopes it doesn‘t have to go out into the real world for many years to come".

This season Maggie goes missing, Homer becomes a premier hairdresser, Moe‘s Tavern is converted into an ultra-trendy bar and the family debates the best way to spend the holiday season. Guest stars paying Springfield a visit in upcoming episodes include actors Halle Berry, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Rachel Weisz, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Alyson Hannigan and Joe Mantegna.

In January 2010, the show celebrated its 450th episode and the conclusion of the Best. 20 Years. Ever, a year-long global 20th anniversary celebration culminating 20 years from the original series premiere.
