given how long it takes animation fox would have to give an okay for any more seasons of the simpsons now and thus proving the show is like star wars it will never die and proably out live even its voice cast and matt groing himself. fox has okayed bart and homer and marge and families adventures for not one but two seasons a 27 and 28 season which will bring its episode count 628 . and thus it still keeps the record of longest running animated series. and family guy and bobs burgers are proably going to also still be joining the simpsons. as like star wars the simpsons are not dead yet. fox okays two more seasons .
