Fox has ordered two additional seasons of Fox's animated series The Simpsons, which will bring the longest-running series in prime-time television history through its 22nd season.

The 44-episode pickup ensures the series will reach 493 episodes. The Simpsons airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. That means more sci-fi friendly episodes like the annual Treehouse of Horror and these Star Wars-themed episodes.

"Best. 20 Years. Ever.", a year-long global celebration honoring all things Simpsons, launched in January and will culminate on Jan. 14, 2010, the 20th anniversary of the series' debut.
