​Showrunner For The Simpsons Shuts Down Claims It’s Coming To An End

​Showrunner For The Simpsons Shuts Down Claims It’s Coming To An End

The showrunner for The Simpsons has shut down claims that the long-running cartoon series is coming to an end, having said such rumours are categorically 'not true'.

Tongues started wagging when Danny Elfman, the composer of the show's theme tune, appeared on Joe.ie's Big Reviewski podcast and said he'd heard things were drawing to a close.

"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."

Of course, what Elfman said was by no means definitive, but that didn't stop the internet taking his word for it.

However, now Al Jean, the programme's showrunner, has refuted Elfman's slightly tentative claims.

Sharing an article about what Elfman had said about the show potentially bowing out, Jean tweeted: "We are all thankful the following article is NOT TRUE."

Well, there you have it: the show will go on - for now, at least, which is enough for most fans.

Created by Matt Groening, The Simpsons has been on screens for almost two decades, having first aired on 17 December 1989 - making it the longest-running American scripted primetime television series.

In Elfman's interview, he went on to express his surprise at the show's popularity.

"All I can say is that I'm so flabbergasted and amazed that it has lasted as long as it did," he said.

"You have to realise, 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.

"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."
