Groening will continue to act as showrunner on Fox’s “The Simpsons,” which is in its 27th season, and has already been renewed for a 28th season, consisting of 22 episodes.

Groening has won 10 Emmys for “The Simpsons” and two for “Futurama,” which ran from 1999-2003 and then was brought back from 2008-2013.
