The Simpsons marathon: FXX to air all 600 episodes in 13 days

Posted on

FOX

Get ready for something more gluttonous than Homer Simpson in eating 64 slices of American cheese: FXX is airing all 600 episodes of The Simpsons in a row.

The marathon will take place over 13 days, from noon ET on Nov. 24, a.k.a. Thanksgiving Day, through Tuesday, Dec. 6. (The show’s 600th episode, which is Treehouse of Horror XXVII, airs Oct. 19 on mother network Fox.)

FXX is billing this binge as the longest-running marathon in TV history. The previous record holder also involves the animated Fox comedy. FXX held a 12-day, 552-episode event in 2014, which helped put the young network on the ratings map. 

Even if you don’t have the stamina for the episode, FXX airs reruns of the entire Simpsons library, minus the current season. The first 27 seasons can also be accessed on FXNow.

Before the 2014 binge began, EW asked the Simpsons writers for their ultimate survival guide, which you can revisit here. To read an interview with two people who made it through 86 hours and 37 minutes of The Simpsons in a row, shake your head and click here.

Season 28 of The Simpsons launches Sept. 25 at 8 p.m., with Amy Schumer guesting as Mr. Burns’ mother.
