You would have thought with $530 million at the worldwide box office 20th Century Fox would have yellow-light a sequel to The Simpsons movie, however we are two years on and there hasn’t been any talk of a second film. Will there be one? According to creator Matt Groening we won’t be getting one any time soon.
“It took 18 years to get around to doing the movie,” Groening said. “We got very frustrated. We thought it would take two years but it ended up taking four. Some day maybe we’ll do another one — but don’t hold your breath.”
As for when the tentpole toon might shut up shop for good, the pair indicated that the final bow was not on the horizon. The current U.S. season is the 21st.
“We cannot predict the end because we can’t believe we are still here today,” explained Groening.
Jean added, “We are contracted to do two more seasons following this one. I gave up predicting the end a long time ago.”
I stopped watching The Simpsons on TV when I discovered Family Guy, but I saw the movie and enjoyed it and would probably see a sequel if they ever get round to making one. Would you be up for a sequel? Do you still watch The Simpsons?
