Composer Danny Elfman Claims ‘The Simpsons‘ Is Ending Soon. With the acquisition of Fox by Disney many shows and films have either been cancelled or have plans to end after the next season or two. It appears not even popular titles such as The Simpsons will be safe from The House of Mouse.
According to The Simpsons composer, Danny Elfman, The Simpsons will be ending soon, possibly in 2020. Elfman had sat down with Joe who asked if he believed the series had passed its prime, Danny’s response was rather quick and he honestly feels it doesn’t matter because according to the famed composer, The Simpsons will be ending soon.
“Well, from what I’ve heard, it is coming to an end,” Elfman said. “So, that argument will also come to an end. I don’t know for a fact, but I’ve heard that it will be in its last year.”
The series is currently contracted for two more seasons, pushing the show to a 32nd season, which means The Simpsons will have episodes premiere in 2020 and 2021, but if Elfman is correct that could mean the series will announce an end date within the next year.
“All I can say is that I’m so flabbergasted and amazed that it has lasted as long as it did. So, you have to realize, 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,” Elfman stated.
“Really, I expected it would run for three episodes and get cancelled, and that would be that, because it was so weird at the time, and I just didn’t think it had a chance. So believe me, that is one of the truly big surprises in my life.”
The Simpsons is currently available to stream on Hulu and Disney+ and showing on Freeform. How do feel about The Simpsons potentially ending? Do you feel it’s about time, or are you upset that the show may be ending? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
