The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean about his idea for the end of the series

The Simpsons, ending, last paragraph

They will never stop The Simpsons. Do not be afraid, they have stories for years. With the extremely long-running animated series in the middle of its 33rd season, it’s hard to imagine a time when we’ve seen the last of The Simpsons; But when that time comes, The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean has an idea for the end.

The Simpsons debuted in 1989 with the episode Simpsons roast on open fire, and Al Jean told RadioTimes he would like to bring the series back to that moment.

I mentioned that there would be an ending where the last episode, they would go back to the Christmas competition from the first episode, so the whole series was a continuous loop – that’s how I would end it if I had to.

The series has been renewed until season 34, so we’ve got a lot more of it The Simpsons ahead of us before we figure out the right ending, but Al Jean added that the series’ popularity on Disney + is likely to keep it going even longer. “But to be honest, the talk of quitting, especially since we’re doing really well at Disney Plus in the US and UK and other countries in America, I can not see anyone going, ‘let’s quit, or find out out of how to get out of it at the moment, ‘“said Jean.”I think we are the number one scripting program in the United States, and also with the new sections.

In terms of how long he imagines The Simpsons Al Jean said he could see the series celebrate 1,000 episodes down the road (they passed the 700 mark earlier this year), which runs out to about 12 more seasons. Now I love The Simpsons and I still see semi-regularly, but I think most can agree that its heyday is far behind. I do not know what my ideal ending for The Simpsons would be, but when the series ends, it does not mean we have to say goodbye to the family. Let’s say the series ends with season 35 (nicely clean number?) And takes a break for a few years before returning with the long-awaited Simpsons movie sequel. Screw Flanders.
