[via press release from FOX]



Season Premiere Episode Airs Sunday, Sept. 25, on FOX

FOX has unveiled a fresh, new web design for www.thesimpsons.com. Fans of THE SIMPSONS can visit the revamped website to explore new interactive elements and graphics, stream full-length episodes and keep up with the most recent news about THE SIMPSONS with enhanced special features.

The new website will feature "booths" modeled after Springfield's most famous landmarks. Fans can stay up-to-date with THE SIMPSONS by visiting the news carousel in the Kidz Newz Booth, watch full-length episodes and episodic clips at the Police Booth and shop for books, DVDs, toys and more at the Kwik-E-Mart. For the first time ever, fans will have the opportunity to download limited edition wallpapers and icons and are encouraged to get to know their favorite Springfield residents by exploring character files that include extensive bios and photos. The website also hosts comprehensive show information, episode recaps from all 23 seasons, and links to THE SIMPSONS' Facebook and Twitter pages.

In the Season 23 premiere episode, "The Falcon and the D'ohman," airing Sunday, Sept. 25 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), HOMER (Dan Castellaneta) befriends Wayne (guest voice Kiefer Sutherland), a reserved security guard recently hired by the nuclear power plant. Plagued by violent flashbacks from his past as a CIA agent, he must overcome his tortured nightmares to save Homer from a Ukranian terrorist. Meanwhile, MARGE (Julie Kavner) fantasizes about being a contestant on "Top Chef" hosted by Tom Colicchio (guest voicing as himself), and the future of Springfield's hottest "it" couple "Nedna" will be revealed after months of online fan voting and speculation.

The longest-running scripted show in television history, THE SIMPSONS exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world. Matt Groening created the iconic family: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. In February 2012, THE SIMPSONS will celebrate its historic 500th episode. The series has won 27 Emmy Awards, been the subject of a hit feature film, created "Krustyland" and a revolutionary virtual coaster - The Simpsons Ride - at Universal Studios, received a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame, been honored with five U.S. postal stamps personally designed by Matt Groening, and named the "Best Show of the 20th Century" by Time Magazine.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman, a Starz Media Company, is the animation house. The animated series features the voice talents of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer.
