The End Could Be Near For “The Simpsons”?
According to Danny Elfman, the end might be near for “The Simpsons.”
The theme song composer was asked if the show had “passed its prime,” and his response could come to a shock to die-hard fans.
“Well, from what I’ve heard, it’s coming to an end. So, that argument will also come to an end,” says Elfman. “I don’t know that for a fact, but I’ve heard it’ll be in its last year.”
Later, he acknowledged that “he could be wrong,” but he’s also “flabbergasted and amazed it has lasted as long as it did.”
Showrunner Al Jean disputes that, but either way, you’ve been warned.
