Whether it’s a melodramatic love story of star-crossed lovers, hatching a mind-blowing plan on escaping from authorities, or keeping up with ridiculously famous celebrities, there’s always a series that captures our attention.

Did you know that The Simpsons is one of the longest-running TV shows of all time? Yet, it is the longest-running American animated program. A sitcom created by Matt Groening, the series satirically presents the daily lives of the typical working-class family in America. The Simpson family consists of husband and wife Homer and Marge, along with their kids Lisa, Bart, and Maggie. Its debut was on December 17, 1989, and now has over 639 episodes. They are now on their 29th season which began on October 2017. The Simpsons took the title of the longest-running tv show from Gunsmoke that ran in television for 20 seasons and 635 episodes from 1955 to 1975. Due to its popularity, a lot of streaming services and websites now let users watch The Simpsons online and download the TV series. Also, other countries have taken to dubbing the series into their local languages, while some have provided subtitles like Dutch, Arabic, Italian, and Spanish, to name a few. Majority of free web series download sites also contain the complete seasons of The Simpsons, proving once again that the show is well-known throughout almost all platforms of the media.

The success of their movie adaptation “The Simpsons Movie” in 2007 which grossed over $527 million paved the way for the renewal of a 29th and 30th season that will run until May 2019. The show won dozens of awards namely 30 Annie Awards, 31 Primetime Emmy Awards, and a Peabody Award. It is still on the list for the top 10 most iconic TV series by Parade Daily. Also, a chart from Statista showed the number of viewers of The Simpsons in America. Its latest season still garnered an average of 4.08 million viewers. The Simpsons managed to stay relevant with a good number of avid viewers.
