The writer of popular TV cartoon series The Simpsons, Al Jean, has revealed that there is no plan to put an end to series. This is coming after composer Danny Elfman said that the cartoon would be concluding after 31 years.
Elfman had hinted in an interview with JOE, that the iconic show will be coming to an end soon. He said: “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 refuting Elfman assertion, the show’s writer, Al Jean, said Elfman claim was untrue. “No disrespect to Mr. Elfman,” began Al Jean, who spoke to Metro, “but we are producing season 32 starting next year and have no plans to end after that.”
Jean has been a part of The Simpsons team since 1992 and went full-time as their showrunner in 2001. He also worked on The Simpsons Movie.
Despite the misunderstanding, Elfman is still amazed by the fact that the show is still in play. “All I can say is that I’m so flabbergasted and amazed that it has lasted as long as it did.
“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.”
