'The Simpsons' is an American animated sitcom, created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and has several parodies of the American culture, society, television, and their general way of being. The dysfunctional family was created by Matt Groening, shortly before a solicitation for a series of animated shorts with producer James L Brooks. Matt named the characters after his own family members, substituting Bart for his own name. He thought Simpson was a funny name because it sounded similar to "simpleton".
The series is a satirical depiction of the typical American life, lived by the Simpson family; consisting of Homer, his wife, Marge, and their children, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. There are a total of over 700 episodes of 'The Simpsons' and the show has already been renewed for a record-breaking 33rd and 34th season. It will probably still be going long after we've all shuffled off this mortal coil, so to say. Either that or, pending advancements in simulated-reality tech, we'll all end up reincarnated someday in a fun little animated town, called Springfield too!

Where to watch?
You can watch Season 33 of 'The Simpsons' on Fox. The previous episodes can be streamed on Disney+.
Here's what we already know. The Simpsons Season 33 premiere will be a musical episode with original songs. Various sources list the premiere's title as "The Star of Backstage" or "The Star of the Backstage," and it appears to have held the working title, "No Day But Yesterday." We can also expect the character Apu's possible return. The character of E Mart operator, Apu, has been a source of controversy in recent years, due to concern over him perpetuating unhelpful Indian stereotypes. Despite Azaria backing out of the role, Apu might still be slated to return in Season 33. Groening has said, "We've got plans for Apu, but we have to see if we can make the stories work."
The third episode of Season 33 called "Treehouse of Horror XXXII", will offer a new edition of the show's annual Halloween special, with five segments instead of three, this time. One of those segments will parody 'Parasite', the South Korean film directed by Bong Joon-ho, which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards in 2020.
