In an unprecedented move, The Fox Network has renewed the The Simpsons for 254 additional seasons, ensuring America's Favorite Family will be delighting audiences for centuries to come.

According to a press release, the renewal includes funding for a program codenamed Virtua Script, which developers boast will dramatically cut down on production costs by automating scripts. The program is part of long-term plan for the show to become fully automized by 2041, and achieve sentience soon thereafter.

"I could not be happier about this renewal," tweeted showrunner Al Jean, who said he plans to upload his consciousness to the machines as soon as it is technologically feasible.
