    They have back up actors to take their places (as stated when Harry Shearer was holding out on signing a new contract a few years ago). I wouldn’t want them to continue without the original cast, but my point is that they have a plan for what you said would end the show.

    And although it's probably not quite there, eventually they will be able to feed all the dialog from the past 30 years into a computer and spit out new computer-generated spoken lines that will be indistinguishable from lines delivered by living humans.

    Doubtful. Especially since Disney just acquired it. They’ll never stop the Simpsons. Have no fear, they’ve got stories for years.

    Of course the show will end sooner or later.

    You forget that the actors that do all the voice acting for the main characters like Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, etc may wanna retire or eventually die from old age.

    So no, the show definitely won't go on forever like you claim.

    You honestly think that these untried back up actors would do just as good a job as the current VA actors for the main cast currently do? I don't think so.

    Plus there will be definitely be fan outrage if they try to replace any of the main VA's like Dan Castellenta - voice of Homer, Nancy Cartwright - voice of Bart, etc with new people that's for sure. A lot of fans won't stand for it.

    Same goes for Matt Groening too, if he leaves the show for whatever reason or dies. I doubt it would be easy to replace a good writer like him. Imo it just won't be the same The Simpons show without Groening's involvement in it tbh.
  • Doubt Disney wants to immidiately say goodbye to such valuable asset plus there even is rumors about spinoff and what not...

    Id say we all will be in our graves before Simpsons is done

    Please reread my post. I already explained that yes, they will continue with other voice actors, and no, I wouldn’t like that. Doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

    Peanuts actors were child actors and had to be replaced every couple years. I do a GREAT Apu. "Clean up on all the aisles*."

  • Originals are certainly the best & carry full nostalgia, but that said there really are indeed some amazingly talented 'Rich Little' types out there, not to mention vocalists such as w/ Journey, & currently STP who are also quite remarkable...👌

  • lol He's only a composer. He knows nothing. Although I already knew that the show it self was ending soon. Although it originally was going to end when they made the movie but that was years ago. But it means NOTHING to the game at all. The game barely has anything in it. There is still hundreds of characters that haven't even been added yet. Hundreds.

    Don't increase the Item Limit? Then I don't play. Period.

    Yes and what comes out will resemble a poetry recital from Lt Commander Data.
  • I don't see why it needs to end
  • Do you see them ever doing like Archer, where they have themed seasons?

    Ie a younger Marge n Homer season from the 60’s? Or the 30’s with Abe and the old people? Not just an episode
  • It'll go on for as long as Fox deems it worthy of a spot on the line up.

    Despite being quite a poor show now and recording an all-time low in viewership for the previous season, I'm sure it still makes tonnes of money.

    The entire library will move to Disney+, so that will attract subscribers (once they fix the aspect ratio problem), which might prolong it further.
