(Newser) The Simpsons will live to a quarter-century: Fox TV announced yesterday it would renew the show for two more seasons after a louder-than-usual contract fight with the actors who provide the voices, reports Entertainment Weekly. That means Homer and crew will be around for a record 24th and 25th seasons. No word on specifics, but the Hollywood Reporter says the actors agreed to a 30% cut in pay per episode, to a mere $300,000 or so. That would still get them nearly $7 million a season.
