The series of The Simpsons, the show’s 23rd season, will air on Ten on Saturday nights from June 16.

Along with Neighbours, Ten shifted The Simpsons to Eleven when the new channel launched early in 2011.

The latest series – which includes a cameo from Aussie info activist Julian Assange – is the first time the Simpsons has returned to Ten since Eleven’s launch. The Assange episode – the show’s 500th – aired in the US in February.

Also in Ten’s Saturday night lineup is Graham Norton.

The Simpsons will air at 6pm, a second season of The Glee Project – searching for Glee cast members – airs at 6.30pm while The Graham Norton Show airs at  8.30pm.
