Official: ‘The Simpsons’ ordered for seasons 24 and 25 (updated)

A press release concerning the future of The Simpsons, in light of recent contract disputes, just arrived from Fox…

The meat of the release:

FOX has renewed THE SIMPSONS, the longest-running comedy in television history, for an incredible 24th and 25th season, bringing the series total to an astonishing 559 episodes. THE SIMPSONS airs Sundays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

In the words of Homer Simpson, “Woo Hoo! I outlasted Andy Rooney!”

No word yet on what pay cut The Simpsons voice actors settled for, but we’ll keep you updated!

UPDATE: The actors will be paid $300,000 per episode – down from their previous $450,000, but not as low as the $250,000 salary Fox hoped for.
