FXX has just announced plans for the longest marathon in television history! Beginning Thanksgiving Day, a 600-episode The Simpsons marathon will span 300 hours (13 days) and include every episode of TV’s longest-running series. The 27-season marathon begins at 12:00 PM ET on Thursday, November 24th and ends on Wednesday, December 6th at midnight ET. The Simpsons marathon will air in chronological order, beginning with the 1989 Simpsons Christmas special.

The Simpsons marathon will become the longest-running marathon in television history, surpassing the previous record holder, FXX’s 552-episode, 12-day Simpsons marathon, which ran from August 21, 2014 at 10 AM to September 1 at midnight. That marathon propelled the nascent FXX to cable’s #1-ranked network primetime in Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 for 12 consecutive days.

“The first ‘Every. Simpsons. Ever.’ Marathon was truly so special and landmark in its cultural relevance and impact,” says FX Networks President and COO Chuck Saftler. “The unprecedented feat of reaching 600 episodes deserves something of that caliber to mark it and celebrate it. Doing this is an act of true fandom, honoring Jim Brooks, Matt Groening, Al Jean, all the writers, artists, directors, people behind the scenes and the ridiculously talented voice actors who have brought this series to life and kept it at the pinnacle of artistic excellence these past 27+ seasons.”

FOX will debut the show’s record 28th season this Sunday, September 25th at 8:00 PM ET/PT, with the premiere episode featuring Amy Schumer as the featured guest voice. In the episode, when Springfield is burned to the ground, the Simpsons beg Mr. Burns to fund its rebuilding. Burns agrees – with one condition: he gets to put on a variety show at the Springfield Bowl, on the all-new “Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus.”
