The series will not be leaving any time soon.
Following yesterday’s speculation that The Simpsons could be ending, showrunner Al Jean has stepped into the conversation to make it clear that the series is not leaving. Jean reached out to Twitter to address the rumors, stating “We are all thankful the following article is NOT TRUE,” when referring to a piece by The Guardian.
The rumors arose when The Simpsons‘ composer Danny Elfman spoke on the Big Reviewski podcast, saying that although he did not “know for a fact,” he did say it could be coming to an end within a year. From this, the speculation circled assuming someone who works closely with the longest-running primetime scripted show in TV history would be aware of this information.
