The Simpsons is returning to television in January with a brand new animated series based on the beloved hit comedy show from 1998.
The show, titled “The Simpsons: The Complete Third Season,” will be written and executive produced by writer and executive producer Matt Groening and directed by Groening.
The Simpsons creator Matt Groen recently told EW that the series will be about the characters of the original TV series, but not necessarily the stories of the movies and television shows.
The new series will also explore the lives of Bart and Lisa and the people who came before them.
The “Simpsons” is the longest-running animated series on television, and Groening said he and his co-writer and executive producers will be returning to the series with a vengeance.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Groening told EW.
“I love the show, and it’s such a unique way to tell a story.”
Groening will return as a producer, as will fellow “Simpson” creators Matt Groden and David X. Cohen.
The series will begin airing on ABC on January 10, 2019.
Groening has also penned several other animated films and television series, including the animated animated feature The Simpsons Movie: The Ultimate Collection.
“The Simpson” is now one of the most popular television series in the United States.
The first season aired from 1989 to 1993, and the series has sold more than 7 million episodes worldwide.
