‘The Simpsons’ Showrunner Describes How He Wants The Show To End




The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean has described how he envisions the series ending.

The Simpsons aired its first episode – Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire –  in 1989. Internationally recognised and boasting the title of longest-running American animated series, The Simpsons is currently debuting its 33rd season.

In an interview with the Radio Times, Jean stated that he’d like the show to end where it started.

“I mentioned that there would be an ending where the last episode, they’d be going back to the Christmas pageant from the first episode,” he said. “So that the whole series was a continuous loop – that’s how I would end it.”


Jean went on to say that he didn’t see The Simpsons ending any time soon: “The talk of ending especially as we’re doing really well on Disney Plus in the US and the UK and other countries like the Americas, I don’t see anybody going, ‘let’s wrap it up, or figure out how to get out of it’ at the moment.”

“I think we’re the number one scripted show in the US, and with the new episodes as well.”
