According to The Simpson’s show composer, Danny Elfman, the show is finally coming to an end.

As the iconic TV show began airing its 31st season recently, the creators behind the hit franchise have hinted that the programme will be coming to an end soon.

While commenting around the ending of the show, Elfman said” “Well, from what I’ve heard, it’s coming to an end. I don’t know for a fact, but I’ve heard that it could be in it’s last year.”

Simpsons fans have been left angered as of late as Disney altered the viewing format of classic episodes from the first 10 seasons of the show on their new streaming service, Disney+. This made many of the shows’ older, most iconic episodes unavailable in the process.

A study which has been conducted by Broadband Choices has come to release the results which have pinpointed the time where the biggest TV shows in history started to lose ratings. The research has shown that the popularity of The Simpsons started to decline in 1997, during the ninth season.

Elfman also added: “All I can say is that I am so flabbergasted and amazed that it has lasted as long as it did.

“You have to realise, when I scored The Simpsons, I wrote this crazy piece of music and I expected no one would hear it, because I really did not think the show had a chance in hell.”
