The Simpsons composer Danny Elfman has claimed the latest season of the cartoon could be its last.
A lot of people think the show has gone stale. I happen to be one of them. That said, I almost can’t imagine a world without them.
Discussing the show’s supposedly imminent end, he explained: ‘Well, from what I’ve heard, it is coming to an end. I don’t know for a fact, but I’ve heard that it will be in its last year.’
While Danny added of the show’s legacy: ‘All I can say is that I’m so flabbergasted and amazed that it has lasted as long as it did.
‘You have to realise, when I scored The Simpsons, I wrote this crazy piece of music, and I expected no one would hear it, because I really did not think the show had a chance in hell.’
The iconic cartoon was created by Matt Groening in 1989, and is the longest-running American sitcom and the longest-running American scripted primetime television series both in terms of seasons and number of episodes.
Despite Danny’s claim, Fox revealed in February this year that the show was renewed for a 32nd season to reach 713 episodes by the end.
