The Simpsons: How Long Before the FOX Series Is Cancelled?

The SimpsonsFOX’s animated phenomenon, The Simpsons, is currently in its 21st season. The ratings aren’t what they were a few years ago but they’re still pretty good when compared to the other animated FOX series.

Still, nothing can last forever. How long will the show go on before the network gets tired of it and cancels The Simpsons?

At the Television Critics Association press tour, FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said, “We have it for two more seasons and then we’ll sit down and see where we are.”

He continued, “The show is extraordinary. We just celebrated twenty years. I’m certainly not gunning for it. It’s still creatively vibrant. The show is up again this season. It’s just mind-blowing the breadth of creativity that’s still coming out of that camp.”

What do you think? Would you like to see The Simpsons keep going or is it time for the show to be over?

The Simpsons is the best thing, in my opinion on tv. The show has stayed consistitanly funny for over 20 years.

i don’t think they should cancel the show just stop making new shows for a year or two to get some new material

It will be cancelled when any of the main voice actors dies, or quits the show.

Wow, im surprised to see so many people want this show to stay on air, i was hoping it would get canceled, the truth is, the show is tired and worn out, it hasnt been good for 6 seasons, thats my opinion at least, the show may be a classic, but its no excuse for keeping it, cause even classics die, and this one died a while back..

The Simpsons will be the only glimpse of eternity anyone will ever experience. Even after the universe has expanded to the extent that the distance between all matter will be so great that gravity will be unable to act upon it, thus making it impossible for planets, stars, and galaxies to form – which obviously rules out any surviving lifeforms, The Simpsons will continue.

I fell in love with this cartoon when it was all the rage during the late 80s and early 90s but has time went on it get much harder, harder and harder to follow the show and I’m beginning to worry about it. A cartoon show like this going 21 seasons until season 22 that’s crazy. The Flintstones lasted 6 seasons on ABC in the 1960s. I rather settle on that show than this.

I believe that the Simpsons will never be canceled primarily because they are a classic that by being canceled would affect the ratings of Fox

I can’t imagine television without the Simpsons Haha! Fox ratings will drop if they cancel this show.

I hope they keep the Simpsons going, I love the show, the Simpsons video games and the Simpsons cookies. I would hate for it all to end.

I don’t think simpsons will ever be canceled, the show is epic!
Everybody says that the new episodes are worse than the old ones, that’s completely bull, it’s just that people expects much more of everything these days. Could you really imagine a world without homer simpson?
I think shows like simpsons & family guy will go on forever, and (I hope) american dad does too :)

Let the Simpsons end! The last time it was funny was in 2000. FOX needs new shows. I don’t give a $#!* if it makes money. They should not be on until the end of the universe. LET IT END NOW PLEASE FOX!!!!

On a renewal not though…Modern Family The Middle and Cougar Town just got renewed!


Zachary January 12, 2010 at 9:50 am

The Simpsons will last for years….them canceling that will just crush their ratings.

The Simpsons is in it’s 21st season, not their 20th.

@Steven Leitner: You’re quite right. Thanks for the catch.
