The Simpsons Probably Won’t Go More Than One More Season
So, even after the producers have taken a pay cut, and even if the actors are cool with their paychecks being cut in half, and even if Fox decides it’s actually financially worth it to keep the show going, it’s likely that we still won’t get more than one more season. Apparently, “an executive close to the show” says that Fox only wants the show for one more year – assuming they can pay much less for it, of course.
On the bright side, having a season’s notice would definitely give the writers time to use any episode ideas they’ve been saving, and of course develop a great final episode. If it has to end, the show definitely deserves ample time to say its goodbyes to the many, many characters headed for that great television set in the sky.
