THE SIMPSONS Showrunner Al Jean Reveals How He Thinks The Long-Running Series Should Be Brought To An End

Al Jean, the showrunner of the long-running family cartoon The Simpsons, recently made apparent his idea for how the show should be brought to an end after thirty years. Hit the jump to check it out...

The Simpsons has been on the air for a very, very, very, very long time - so much so that that many very's doesn't quite do it justice - and become an iconic household name.

Its showrunner recently revealed his idea for how the series should end after such a long time. Al Jean, the longtime lead executive producer of the sitcom, first suggested the idea back in 2014, with the following tweet:



The above tweet refers to the very first episode of The Simpsons which aired on December 17th of 1989 (I told you that many very's doesn't cut it).

Jean's idea has recently made a resurgence he made reference to it whilst discussing the upcoming 30th season of the show.



If the show ends as Jean suggests, the family will again find themselves attending the school’s Christmas pageant, indicating that no time has passed - which would go a hell of a long way in explaining the long-debated topic of why The Simpsons haven't aged in all this time.

Jean had previously told Esquire that with any luck, the show will continue into infinity, admitting "you know, I'm just trying not to ever have it end." So, who's to say how the show should end - based on Jean's earlier comments it seems like The Simpsons might be sticking around for another couple hundred generations.

What do you think about Jean's idea? How do you think The Simpsons should be brought to an end?
