IT'S already the longest running scripted show on TV - and that reign is set to continue.

Network Fox announced today that 'The Simpsons' would continue for at least two more years, bringing the show up to a record 28 years on the air.

It will bring the shows run to a total of 625 episodes.

Although the show has fallen in popularity over the last decade, its ratings remain solid for the network.

Coupled with endorsement and merchandise deals, the series is still a huge money-spinner, almost three decades after it first aired.
