The Simpsons is the longest-running scripted TV series in history and it is not about to slow down. The 31st season of the animated juggernaut will premiere on Disney+ next month.

The season contains 22 episodes and it will drop in one go on the streaming platform on November 6th. It will join more than 600 episodes already available on Disney+. 

As in previous seasons, the 31st season contains various celebrity guest appearances. Among others, we’ll get to hear Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Billy Porter, Jason Momoa, John Mulaney, Joey King, Kevin Smith, Jim Parsons, Cate Blanchett, Chrissy Teigen, and Lilly Singh. John Legend and Weezer will give musical performances.

The season will also see the 30th Treehouse of Horror episode—a beloved series tradition since it’s second season. This time, the episode will also return to CGI animation as it did back in Treehouse of Horror VI in 1996. Back then Homer was transformed to 3D as an accident took him to “the real world”. Over the years the show used these episodes to experiment with different kinds of styles such as LEGO, puppetry, and even a live version.
