They’ll by no means cease The Simpsons. Haven’t any fears, they’ve acquired tales for years. With the extraordinarily long-running animated sequence within the midst of its thirty third season, it’s laborious to think about a time once we’ll have seen the final of The Simpsons; However when that point does arrive, The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean has an concept for the ending.
The Simpsons debuted in 1989 with the episode Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fireplace, and Al Jean instructed RadioTimes that he’d wish to carry the sequence again to that second.
I discussed that there can be an ending the place the final episode, they’d be going again to the Christmas pageant from the primary episode in order that the entire sequence was a steady loop – that’s how I might finish it, if I needed to.
The sequence has been renewed by means of to season 34, so we’ve acquired much more of The Simpsons forward of us earlier than we discover out the actual ending, however Al Jean added that the sequence’ recognition on Disney+ will seemingly preserve it going even longer. “However to be trustworthy, the speak of ending, particularly as we’re doing very well on Disney Plus within the US and the UK and different nations within the Americas, I don’t see anyone going, ‘let’s wrap it up, or work out how one can get out of it’ in the meanwhile,’” Jean stated. “I believe we’re the primary scripted present within the US, and with the brand new episodes as effectively.“
As for the way lengthy he envisions The Simpsons lasting, Al Jean stated that he might see the sequence celebrating 1,000 episodes down the street (they handed the 700 mark earlier this 12 months), which works out to about 12 extra seasons. Now, I like The Simpsons and I nonetheless watch semi-regularly, however I believe most can agree that its glory days are lengthy behind it. I don’t know what my best ending for The Simpsons can be, however when the sequence does finish, it doesn’t imply that we’ve to bid the household goodbye. Say the sequence ends with season 35 (good clear quantity?) and takes a break for a number of years earlier than returning with the long-overdue Simpsons movie sequel. Screw Flanders.
