In a move that’s sure to unsettle Australian millennials everywhere, Seven West Media has acquired the free-to-air rights for The Simpsons.
The iconic show’s free-to-air home has been a mystery following the news last October that 21st Century FOX had terminated its long-running partnership with Network Ten.

As Sydney Morning Herald reports, it’s being speculated that Seven paid as much as $40 million for the rights to the cartoon as well as MASH and a number of undisclosed FOX programs.
