TV shows come and go, but very few of them are as consistent and popular as “The Simpsons.”
The series has been running constantly since 1989 and while everyone thought it will last forever, ultimately all things must come to an end.
Although the famous, animated, yellow-skinned family has ventured into its 27th season with another one after it confirmed, rumors have risen about the show’s inevitable end.
While talking to THR, executive producer and series showrunner Al Jean shared a few thoughts about that.
He said: “It’s quite possible that we don’t have to go through the whole negotiation for 30. I wouldn’t be stunned if we stopped at 28, but my bet is on at least 30. But then you’d have to resign them again.”
Jean added: “If you made me pick one, I’d say the likeliest is ending after 30, but I’ve been wrong before. I thought five seasons was good when I got there.”
That’s a decent speculation, especially one you consider that it’s hard predicting the future of the show that’s been with us for 26 years. At least we can look forward to three new seasons before “The Simpsons” finally call it quits.
