Logan, UT asked in Trademark for Utah

Q: If a Trademark status is "Status800 - Registered and Renewed" Does that mean company keeps the trademark forever?

So my point comes from that Sony Pictures Television owns the animated show "the critic" trademark, the show was created back in the mid 90s. I want to only hope that Sony keeps the trademark of the show. Its just a matter of do they have complete control of the trademark when its filed as "registered and renewed" and is there a specific extension of time for this status?

A: DRAGON TALES was registered for "entertainment services in the nature of an ongoing children's television series" in 2000 by Columbia Pictures Television and the registration is now owned by Sony Pictures Television. The registration was renewed in 2019 for another ten-year term, and if still in use could be renewed again in 2029.
