 Latest Update
 November 24th, 2020

Welcome to the 24th November 2020 update. You can watch the first 31 seasons of The Simpsons on Disney+ in the UK - but if you still prefer your TV linear, full, updated and finalised schedules for Channel 4, RTÉ2 and Sky1 are available below, right up through mid-December. I'll be back on December 1st, hopefully with our first look at Christmas schedules; feel free to e-mail me at wesley@simpsonsarchive.com if you need to contact me in the meantime. Stay well.

 Channel 4 & 4seven : Schedule Status & Listings
 24th November to 13th December 2020

SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 8, 10, 14, 15, 17, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, 28
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, Digiguide

Channel 4 are currently finishing up the terrestrial premiere of season 28 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 season 28 is a repeat of season 27.

Over Saturday and Sunday mornings and lunchtimes on C4, we mostly get seasons 9, 20 and 22. Additionally, there's a late-night double of "Treehouse of Horror" episodes on Tuesday 8th.

The show returns to 4seven on Saturday 12th, with a couple of repeats from the previous Sunday - we'll see if this once again becomes a regular fixture on the channel.

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.

 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 24th November to 13th December 2020


SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31, 32 soon
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky currently broadcast four episodes on weekdays: one at 5pm, then three from 6:30pm to 8pm. There are sometimes additional episodes in the 8pm hour. 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 6, 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 12, then season 13, and then season 24, occupying those same slots. (The run of season 6 pushes the season 5 1F-production holdovers to the end of the run, as Sky usually do.) There's also some season 23 on weekend mornings.

No word yet on the premiere of season 32, but late December or early January looks likely, based on prior years.

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