One of Benjamin Franklin's most popular quotes is, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”— however we might have to add The Simpsons to that list. Variety reported that the show will be renewed for a record-breaking 29th and 30th season.
This isn't the first time that the show has broken a record before. Just under two decades ago (yes, you read that correctly, decades)—The Simpsons surpassed the Flintstones as the longest-running primetime animated series. Now that the show has been renewed for a 29th and a 30th season, it all but guarantees them the record of having the most episodes in TV history.
The current holder of the record is Gunsmoke!, which actually started as a radio broadcast from 1952 to 1961, but also made the switch to television in 1955, where it lasted for 20 years and had 635 episodes.

James L. Brooks, executive producer of The Simpsons, recently talked with LRM about the possibility of a sequel to The Simpsons Movie.
“Fox very much wants us to do another one, and maybe we will and maybe we won’t—that’s where it is,” said Brooks, essentially teasing all of us.
