‘The Simpsons’ Has Been Renewed for Two More Seasons

The Simpsons

Fans of ‘The Simpsons’ were thrown into a panic a couple of weeks ago when word leaked that the voice actors on the show were holding out for more money. Fox said if they couldn’t come to an agreement this current season would be the last for the show.

There’s happy news though: the show has been renewed for two more seasons — the 24th and 25th seasons, to be exact.

Each voice actor on the show was making around $8 million a year, and it was reported that Fox wanted them to take a 45 percent pay cut. No details on the new deal have been released yet, though several sources are saying there was a 30 percent pay cut.

Harry Shearer, who does several voices on the show, including Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, and Principal Skinner, said publicly that he would take a 70 percent pay cut to keep the series going, but that he and the other actors wanted to finally share in profits from the show, something Fox has been unwilling to do.

Not everyone is happy about the news, however. Some people think the show went downhill several years ago and never recovered. They want the show to be canceled now.
