The Simpsons hit another major milestone with its Halloween episode on Sunday night. The episode marked the 600th new airing for the FOX animated series. The series is now inching closer to the record owned by Gunsmoke. That series aired 635 episodes. The Simpsons will reach that number during its 29th season if FOX renews the series.
Is the series getting closer to its end though? The voice cast is signed on through a possible season 30, but the future for Homer and his family is cloudy after that.
Deadline shared the following about the future of the series in a recent report:
“The Simpsons won’t surpass that count until sometime in 2018 when episode 16 of season 29 airs – assuming that the series is renewed. That’s likely to happen of course: the most recent series renewal back in 2015 only covered seasons 27 and 28, but the cast are all optioned through a hypothetical season 30. Which, by the way is when most observers assume the show will, at long last, fade off into the poorly-regulated nuclear sunset. Not bad for a show that began as a series of crudely animated shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show.”

I can’t imagine the Simpsons ending after 30 seasons. I love the show and want to see it continue to bring laughter to generations to come and beyond
I remember running in the house when my mom holler and said the simpsons was coming on the very 1st time. I have watched it ever since I hope very much that it never ends. 30 seasons Is not enough.
After all these years, the 30th season of the Simpsons should come to an end. Times change, people change everything in life has an end. The show made it’s point I feel there’s nothing left to prove I have nothing against the series, it’s just that I feel that the series has reached the end of the road and I just don’t feel that it’s funny anymore same plot lines over and over again, Bart who’s been a class clown through the years if such a bother in school, why isn’t he in Special ED ? s for Lisa she’s… Read more »
I don’t want it to end at all, but if it does i have a god plot. The Simpsons find out there in a TV show and everything starts to fade out of existence as punishment for finding out the truth. But as soon as their about to escape they start to fade away from youngest to oldest. Meanwhile, Homer is the only one left and as soon as he’s about go through the exit, he starts fade away until he fades away completely. Then the episode ends with all the couch gags from every season and at the end,… Read more »
No I love the Simpsons it just is that good I have been waiting it for a long time and I don’t want it to end but if for some reason it does then do it with a bag the Simpsons has been on TV for a long time and it is a good TV show some of outer TV shows are ok or not so good so I say live it bee
I recognize that the cast is getting older, but voice-over isn’t THAT hard, so I sincerely hope they’ll continue. They’re great fun.
