Matt Groening said he plans to continue THE SIMPSONS for another five years, reports THE SUN. This would make the series tie with GUNSMOKE as the longest running series in U.S. primetime history. THE SIMPSONS is already the longest running sitcom ever in the U.S.
Groening said: "I'd love to get to 365 episodes, so there's one for every day of the year with no repeats."
However, to reach Groenings goal, the actors would have to extend their contract for an additional year.
