"Simpsons" Producer Proposes Most Perfect Series Ending EverLast Laugh
Executive producer Al Jean tweets his pitch for the ending of the longest running show on TV—and it's awesome.
There seems to be no end to "The Simpsons" in sight—and that's fine with us! In fact, FXX is currently broadcasting a 12-day marathon of the entire animated series' 522 episodes, and the comedy starts its 26th season on Fox on September 28.
But when it does come time for the sun to set on Springfield, long-time executive producer Al Jean already has a clever idea on tap for the long-running series' final episode. He tweeted it during the FXX marathon.
The episode he's referring to is the series' pilot, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire," which begins at Springfield Elementary School's Christmas pageant. That's also the episode in which Santa's Little Helper, the Simpsons' beloved dog, joins the family.
Whoa. One big circle... Kind of trippy, but also kind of perfect! It could certainly work since Homer, Bart, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie haven't aged a day since they premiered on our screens in 1989.
What do you think of Jean's purposed ending? Sound off in the comments section below.
