The news came Friday, just days after the series rated No. 1 on Sunday night in the key 18-49 demographic, up 12 percent from last year's average, The Hollywood Reporter said.
"For more than a quarter of a century, 'The Simpsons' has captured the hearts and minds of fans in a way that transcends ages, languages and cultures," Reilly said. "This groundbreaking series is not only the longest-running scripted show in television history, it 's one of the greatest sitcoms of our time, and I 'm looking forward to yet another landmark season."
"The Simpsons" is the longest-running scripted show in television history and has won 28 Emmy Awards.
The show received an Academy Award nomination in 2012 for the short film "The Longest Daycare."
