Hello hello hello friends. Wookiee popping by with another edition of Simpsons News… where I take the information anyone with fingers, the internet and the desire to Oogle can find, and post in one concise place for your reading enjoyment. I know not everyone looks for stuff about The Simpsons every week so every once in a while if I’ve gathered up a list of articles or seeing something new on my feed, I like to share. Anywho… the interweb has had a lot of stuff recently so I wrote a quick blurb for each. I hope you enjoy this all as much as I did.
First up… an interview I found with Al Jean about the end of the Simpsons.
Of course, in this, Al Jean says “we’ll either end after 625 (end of Season 28) or 669 episodes (end of Season 30) or later.” That’s far from a specific number but already some news outlets have declared Season 30 as the end. Here’s another article with a quote from Al.
Of course, FOX has to sign on for seasons beyond 28 so who knows when the show will end? I know how many some people want but we;re way past that number already. Reader orionsriver shared this link a little while ago that aired during the premiere of FOX’s Minority Report. I’d be down with this many episodes lol.
Some days I wonder if I’m the die-hard Simpsons fan trolls love to hate. Jebus knows I disagree with critics on a lot re: my favorite yellow family. So many times articles reference uber fans with views quite different than mine about quality, longevity, etc. Anywho… on with more news. I found a pretty neat article about Simpsons think piece art that has been appearing in Chicago, Illinois.
Of course, the most recent news I’ve been seeing is in regards to one Waylon Smithers, Jr. We all know this flamboyant lackey to one of the most evil men in Springfield, but I guess Season 27 will have some Flanders-centric episodes. The one this article mainly mentions apparently premieres in March and will be a two-part story of Smithers finally confessing something obvious to his boss.
In the following TV Guide article, they mention a relationship with none other than Julio which I think could be very entertaining.
Far from wanting to turn this news article into a political commentary, I did read a good article about The Simpsons and Donald Trump. If you like to avoid politics, just skip right over it and the paragraph that follows it.
I’ve had many conversations with people about this future episode and the reality of Trump running for President. Of course, I always point out similarities to Biff Tannen in Back to the Future II but I’m digressing so I’ll stop.
Here’s another great article from The Huffington Post about which celebrity the Simpsons writers agreed to not make fun of.
And just to round out this edition of Simpsons News with something fun, check out what this Simpsons-loving couple decided to do to their house!
So there you go friends… just some Simpsons News and articles to add that little extra to your day. What do you think of it all? Excited for Season 27? Rumor has it that there will be not one but two Halloween-themed episodes, Bart getting killed by Bob, Patty and Selma quitting smoking AND Spiderpig besides the Smithers stuff. Would you decorate your house a la The Simpsons? Like Johnny Carson like me? Sound off in the comments and happy tapping friendereenos.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
