Did someone order more Bob’s Burgers with a side of fries? Oh, right, it was Fox! The network is ordering two more seasons each of Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and Family Guy! All three shows will continue as part of Fox’s 2024-2025 broadcast cycle, much to the delight of animation enthusiasts everywhere. Bob’s Burgers is prepping Season 14 and 15 of the hilarious and heartfelt series about a middle-class family operating a burger joint on the Jersey Shore. The Simpsons are ordering a record-breaking 35th and 36th season, while Family Guy is getting a 22nd and 23rd season.
“With this trio of renewals, we celebrate excellence in animation on Fox, our wonderful, long-time partnership with 20th Television and the brilliant creators and incredible voices behind these forever favorites,” said Michael Thorn, Fox Entertainment’s president of scripted programming. “Three-plus decades of ‘The Simpsons,’ more than two decades of ‘Family Guy’ and over a decade of ‘Bob’s Burgers’ proves the enduring power of the animation genre on our network and the infinite fan affinity for these outrageously funny comedy classics.”
Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and Family Guy rank among the Top 10 comedies for the 2022-23 season, with Bob’s Burgers in second, The Simpsons in fourth, and Family Guy in fifth. Animation recently took a hit after Adult Swim and Hulu fired Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland from Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites, and Koala Man. Roiland faces one felony count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud, and deceit. Roiland voices several primary characters on each show and will be replaced while animators work on their respective shows.
You can’t see me, but I did some backflips in my office. What? It’s true. I might be 42, but I’m still spry! Bob’s Burgers is one of my favorite animated shows of all time, and I’m thrilled to hear Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louis will be flipping burgers for at least two more seasons. Animation is a tricky business, and unless you’re one of the big dogs, it isn’t easy to survive in such a competitive market. Congratulations are in order for all three series, and I’m sure fans will be thrilled when they hear the great news!
