It's not even so much that it's been on for so long, but it's amazing that it's still going at a relatively high quality.

The Simpsons Renewed, Will Pass 500 Episodes

    Vulture has learned that Fox has renewed The Simpsons for a 23rd season of animated adventures, taking it through its landmark 500th episode (specifically, it takes the show up to episode 515). Word of the show's continued production comes as The Simpsons is having a particularly buzzworthy season, what with that recent Banksy open, a Mark Zuckerberg cameo, and an upcoming Katy Perry segment with the Muppets. Longtime Simpsons show-runner Al Jean, while psyched about the renewal, said he can't claim to be the most excited one about the good news: "The happiest of all was the unicorn who pokes in all our DVDs," Jean told us. "He's getting extra hay out of this."

Hope they can keep this going for as long as they can, because it's going to feel WEIRD to live in a world without new Simpsons episodes.

When I was in second grade, my grade school banned kids from wearing Bart Simpson T-shirts. You got sent home, in fact, for wearing one.

I'm now 28, and my elementary school's been torn down. And The Simpsons is still making new episodes.

I bet the show will go to Season 25 (for marketing purposes) and then that will be it.

And I bet that the show will be renewed for many many more seasons than 25 (also for marketing purposes).

I suspect the only thing that will stop the Simpsons is if one of the main cast (or Hank Azaria or Harry Shearer) dies or retires. And maybe not even then. And it will still be on in syndication by the time *I* croak.

So is this going to be a kayfabe flick? Or is the guy coming back for one more match because he needs money, or something like that? I like Aronofsky, but Cage gets it right about 1 out of every 10 movies.
