The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean would like to make it clear that the series isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
On Thursday, Jean addressed a recent rumor that was going around about the show “coming to an end.”.
@TheSimpsons We are all thankful the following article is NOT TRUE: https://t.co/2Z0VqdfIEM — Al Jean (@AlJean) November 28, 2019.
The belief that the end was near for The Simpsons started when the show’s composer Danny Elfman appeared on the Big Reviewski podcast, and shared that he had heard that the series was coming to a close.
“Well, from what I've heard, it is coming to an end,” Elfman said.
Back in February, Fox announced that The Simpsons were being renewed for Seasons 31 and 32, despite the increasing costs that come with producing the series.
The future of the show from here on out will be up to Disney who owns the show following the merger with Fox. »
