Is The Simpsons ending as series 31 finishes?

There used to be a saying that, at the end of the world, the only survivors would be cockroaches and Cher – but that should be updated to include The Simpsons.

The show has run for 681 episodes and one movie (and counting) – making it the longest running scripted show in television history – and these episodes have truly run the gauntlet, from murder mysteries to apparently predicting coronavirus.

And lately, the show has proven it’s still capable of shocking fans – with the true story behind Millhouse’s expression coming to light recently and the discovery of their real ages (hint: much older than many would’ve guessed).

But is it finally time for television’s most famous family (sorry, Kardashians) to come to an end; is The Simpsons ending after this latest season?

Will The Simpsons end after season 31?

The series finale of season 31 of The Simpsons airs tonight in the US, but the show will be back for a season 32.

The show was officially picked up for a 31st and 32nd season back in February 2019, where the news was announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

But after rumours went around that perhaps the show had decided to end early, producer of the show Al Jean took to Twitter late last year to confirm that the show will indeed be coming back for another season.

When one ‘fan’ suggested it should be time to let the show go, replying: ‘Shame because the show is now the equivalent of watching paint dry with a dead body in front of it’, Jean was quick with an effective retort.

He simply replied: ‘Emmy best animated program 2019.’

In the season finale of the latest season, a synopsis for the episode reads: ‘After the Simpson’ dog bites Marge, the family explores the tragic past of Santa’s Little Helper.’

It airs tonight in the US but will be available for Sky customers in the UK on Friday May 28 at 8pm.

Disney+ is currently airing seasons one to 30, but Sky owns the rights to broadcast the latest series.
