The Simpsons to be ‘CANCELLED’ after 30 years on air

The Simpsons is one of the longest running TV shows ever made, but a recent big change could be about to bring that to an end. 

The beloved cartoon has been going for 30 seasons, and there’s at least two more to come after Fox renewed the show through to 2021. 

However, Fox recently merged with rival company Disney, and with the big change came concerns that the company could end up cancelling shows that it doesn’t consider “family friendly”. 

Yeardley Smith – aka Lisa Simpson – has revealed that if Disney did decide to alter the show, that it’s likely the creators would just “cancel it” rather than altering its legacy. 

She told Hollywood Reporter: “When you’re dealing with something that is still so culturally relevant, and sort of such a pillar of our culture…

“If you’re going to mess with that, that’s some pretty risky territory.

“So my feeling is — and I could be completely wrong — is that they would cancel it before they would change it [creatively].”

Disney have yet to discuss the future of the show, so for now fans will be left up in the air about its longterm prospects in its new home. 

Earlier this year, the creators of the show axed a classic episode from circulation. 

The episode, titled Stark Raving Dad, was removed because it features the voice of Michael Jackson.

It came in response to two-part documentary Leaving Neverland.

The film, which aired on HBO last month, detailed accusations made by Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck who claim the star sexually abused them and groomed them as children at his Neverland estate.

The Simpsons airs on Sky One in the UK.
