With its 33rd season currently airing, The Simpsons is the longest-running primetime series in America. Although it is a current show, fans of the most famous yellow family on television wonder when its plot will end.
Showrunner Al Jean has decided to answer this question and shared his idea of how the iconic FOX comedy should end.

In an interview with Radio Times on Sunday, November 21, Jean, who has been working on the animated show since its inception 32 years ago, stated: “There is an ending where the Simpsons would return to the Christmas contest from the first episode. The idea is to imply that the entire series is a continuous loop. This is how I would end itHe commented.
In the first chapter of The Simpsons, which aired on December 17, 1989, the family is seen sharing with the other characters at Springfield Elementary School in the middle of Christmas.
While the screenwriter has told how he would close his time on TV The Simpsons, fans should not be too worried about saying goodbye to the show. Jean told Radio Times that the producers are still happy with the development of the show.
“To be honest, especially since we’re doing so well on Disney + in the US, UK, and other countries, I don’t see anyone at the company saying, ‘Let’s finish it, or figure out how to get out of it now.'” Al Jean explained.
The Simpsons aired its 700th episode earlier this year, and Jean says he’d be happy to keep the show until it reaches 1,000 episodes, a feat that wouldn’t happen until 2033.
