There have been rumours gathering pace about the future of The Simpsons, with claims that the Fox series would be ending soon circulating.

However, these rumours have been shut down after showrunner Al Jean tweeted that a Guardian article suggesting these claims was not true.

The speculation began when Danny Elfman, the creator of the show’s theme tune, said ‘From what I’ve heard it will be coming to an end’ on a podcast.

This news would have proven surprising to many, considering that it’s a huge title on Fox and has also recently been moved to Disney’s new Disney+ streaming service for subscribers.

Disney now owns 21st Century Fox after acquiring it earlier in the year. Since the entire 30 season library was uploaded to Disney+, it has been one of the trending series since the platform’s launch.

The show has also been renewed for a 31st and 32nd season, so it will be around until at least 2022.
