The Official Word -- Simpsons Renewed

We've heard unofficial reports on this -- rumors, innuendo and Harry Shearer shooting off his mouth on MSNBC, but as a Simpsons director told me a week ago:

"There's been lots of talk, but we haven't gotten any notice from Fox or Gracie. So we're still hoping, but don't actually know."

But now everyone can stop speculating ...

FOX has ordered two additional seasons of THE SIMPSONS, which will bring the longest-running series in primetime television history through its 22nd season. The 44-episode pickup ensures the series will reach an astounding 493 episodes. THE SIMPSONS airs Sundays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX ...

Two seasons should make the crew happy. Having the ability to plan out your professional life for two freaking years in a row is a nice thing to have in your back pocket.
