Citing the undue burden that the very successful Simpsons film put on his writing staff, producer David Silverman said we’re probably looking at a really long time before another installment of the Simpsons film franchise. A really long time. Like so long that 20% of the people reading this could be dead by the time it happens*.
(*I am not an actuary, and this statistic is almost certainly untrue.)
While The Simpsons has certainly slid from cultural relevance over the past decade or so, it’s never, ever, ever going to end, so let’s all just hope that this film gets done before most of the voice cast or audience dies during The People’s North Korean invasion of the United States in 2021.
