 Latest Update
 September 22nd, 2020

Welcome to the 22nd September 2020 update. Apologies for the lack of update last week. Streaming service Disney+ has launched in the UK, carrying the first 30 seasons of The Simpsons. If you still prefer your TV linear, full, updated and finalised schedules for Channel 4, RTÉ2 and Sky1 are available below, right up through late September. I'll be back on September 29th; feel free to e-mail me at wesley@simpsonsarchive.com if you need to contact me in the meantime. Stay well.

Channel 4 are currently airing season 7 in the weekday 6pm slot. As there is a limited supply of upcoming Hollyoaks episodes due to coronavirus, the 6pm slot is now temporarily a double-bill on Fridays. Following this is season 10.

Times and specifics vary from week to week; see details below. There's also late-night episodes on Thursday 24th and Wednesday 30th, including "Weekend at Burnsie's", among others, on both occasions - see details below.

Note that all episodes that air on Channel 4 are simulcast on Channel 4 HD and can be viewed one hour later on their timeshift service, Channel 4 +1. There are currently no episodes airing on 4seven.

Sky currently broadcast four episodes on weekdays: one at 5pm, then three from 6:30pm to 8pm. Weekends are a little less predictable, but we usually get a decent number of episodes - usually between five and nine a day, spread across the morning, afternoon and evening.

Currently airing: season 3, in two concurrent runs: one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm, plus Saturday evenings). That's followed by season 16; then season 11, occupying those same slots.

As ever, note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards are simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.
