Disney+ will stream season 32 of “The Simpsons” Sept. 29. With this addition, 706 episodes of the iconic animated series will be on the service. Fans can also update their Disney+ profile with one of eight avatars featuring the Simpsons characters, including Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Krusty The Clown, Ralph Wiggum, and Dr. Hibbert. Disney+ is also the home of “The Simpsons Movie” and the latest Simpsons shorts: “The Good, The Bart, and The Loki” and “The Force Awakens From Its Nap.”

Here are additional deals and projects:

  • The HBO hit “Succession” premieres its third season on Oct. 17. HBO also sent out the official storyline: “Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall at the end of season two, Logan Roy begins season three in a perilous position, scrambling to secure familial, political, and financial alliances. Tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war.”

  • “Only Murders in the Building” got a second season renewal from Hulu. Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez star in the mystery series. The three true-crime fans set out to solve a murder in their Upper West Side building. “Only Murders in the Building” debuted as the most-watched Hulu original comedy at its Aug. 31 premiere date.

  • “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” got a green light for a third season from Disney+.
