Synopsis

Winner of the 2019 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, The Simpsons continues to strike a chord with viewers for irreverently poking fun at anything and everything. With its subversive humour and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture. Its family members – Homer (Dan Castellaneta), Marge (Julie Kavner), Bart (Nancy Cartwright), Lisa (Yeardley Smith) and Maggie – are television icons. Already the longest-running scripted series in television history, the Emmy Award-, Annie Award- and Peabody Award-winning animated comedy has surpassed Gunsmoke’s record of the most episodes for a scripted prime-time television series. The Simpsons is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Matt Groening and developed by James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Sam Simon. James L. Brooks and Matt Groening are executive producers. Al Jean also serves as an executive producer and the series’s showrunner.

Even after 30 years, 600+ episodes and a feature-length movie, The Simpsons shows little sign of slowing down. Homer continues to rope poor Marge into his haphazard schemes, Bart keeps on raising hell for his fellow Springfieldians and Lisa remains stubbornly determined to eke out a normal life in spite of the impossible odds stacked against her.

Sure, the animation quality may have improved, but the world's favourite yellow-skinned family is still as dysfunctional as ever. For a long time, keeping pace with all of the Simpsons's shenanigans meant playing by Channel 10's schedule and sitting through commercial break after commercial break.

Disney+ launched in Australia with 29 seasons of The Simpsons. However, as of 1 August 2020 they've now got season 30 in full too, so as Homer would say Woo Hoo!

Initially, Disney+ experienced fan backlash for offering all episodes of The Simpsons in the newly cropped 16:9 aspect ratio, which resulted in some characters looking stretched and even missing visual gags. For context, most of The Simpsons episodes (the first 19 and a half seasons) premiered in a 4:3 ratio.

However, this has now been fixed. Disney+ users can take advantage of the platform's toggle feature to watch The Simpsons in its original format. To do so, go to the Details panel prior to streaming an episode. Once there, you'll see a toggle for Remastered Aspect Ratio. The setting starts toggled on, so click on it to turn it off. You should be good to go after that.

    It appears that as of Season 29 (currently airing) is nowhere to be purchased in Australia, despite the previous one being available for sale 3 days after airing in the US on iTunes/Google Play. Any way I can watch the currently airing season without pirating it?

      Hi Peso,

      Thanks for your enquiry. Unfortunately, as you discovered, there is currently no way of legally watching The Simpsons Season 29 online in Australia. It’s not clear yet whether this will change, but we’ll keep our eyes and ears out for any news on the matter.

      Regards,

      Matt

      Hi Jamie,

      Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, due to its current financial situation, Channel Ten has pulled The Simpsons from its programming. Your best bet to watch The Simpsons, then, is either by downloading individual seasons or episodes from the services we’ve listed on this page (iTunes, Microsoft Store, Google Play, etc…) or by purchasing the seasons on DVD from a local store like JB Hi-Fi or online via retailers like Amazon.

      I hope this helps!

      Regards,

      Matt
