FOX have confirmed that The Simpsons has been renewed for a 29th and 30th season, which will take the overall tally of episodes up to 669. The most televised comedy ever has suffered in quality at times but recent seasons have been widely praised and there's even talk of a second movie.  However, it should be mentioned that current showrunner Al Jean has previously revealed the show would probably finish after it's 30th season,  so we may be closing in on the end of Homer and his iconic family.
