Fox has officially picked up "The Simpson" for a historic 26th season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

“For more than a quarter of a century, 'The Simpsons' has captured the hearts and minds of fans in a way that transcends ages, languages and cultures,” Reilly says. “This groundbreaking series is not only the longest-running scripted show in television history, it’s one of the greatest sitcoms of our time, and I’m looking forward to yet another landmark season.”

Last Sunday’s 25th season premiere ranked as the No. 1 entertainment program of the night among Adults 18-49 and was up +12% from last season’s average.

On the next all-new episode, the show's annual Halloween special, “Treehouse of Horror XXIV,” airing this Sunday, Oct. 6 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on Fox, director, screenwriter, producer and novelist Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth) resurrects monsters and classic characters from horror films throughout history for the opening couch gag.

Then, in the first of three spine-tingling tales, Homer travels around Springfield wreaking havoc in a rhyming spoof of a popular children’s tale. In "Dead and Shoulders," Bart is beheaded during a kite accident, his head is attached to Lisa's body and they must live together as one. The final frightening tale, "Freaks no Geeks," features Mr. Burns' traveling circus, The Burnsum and Bailey Circus, which has stopped in Springfieldland in the 1930s. Trapeze artist Marge and Strong Man Homer are performers, and things go awry when circus freak Moe starts to make advances towards Marge.
