 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 20th February to 9th March 2018


SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28
SOURCE: Digiguide

The premiere of season 29 continues, with episodes every Friday at 8pm, repeated the following Sunday at 6:30pm.

  • "Gone Boy", which got a soft premiere on Christmas Eve, gets an encore on Friday 23rd at 8pm
  • "Haw Haw Land" premieres Friday 2nd at 8pm (encore Sunday 4th at 6:30pm)
  • "Frink Gets Testy" premieres Friday 9th at 8pm (encore expected Sunday 11th at 6:30pm)

That might be it for now, as we will have caught up to the US, thanks to a two-month break in newbies Stateside between January and March.

In more regular rotation: four episodes on weekdays: at 5pm, then from 6:30pm to 8pm. Fridays have an additional episode at 8pm (home to the season 29 run, as cited above).

Saturdays and Sundays have four to six episodes in the morning from 8am, and four or more in the evening around 6pm. There are currently no late-night episodes.

Currently occupying those slots: seasons 2 and 3 dominate, back in the two-concurrent-runs format, one primetime (evenings every day) and one out-of-primetime (5pm weekdays, weekend mornings). No word yet on what follows those.

Looking out for The Simpsons Movie? See those outings listed in the schedules below, marked in blue.

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