found on the web:

In an interview with London's Finacial Times, Simpsons creator Matt Groening says the show may come to an end soon. "It becomes increasingly difficult as the years go by to keep on not only surprising the audience, but surprising ourselves," said Groneing. "I think we are closer to winding it up. Although what happens generally if we win the Emmy for best animation show is that that gives us another couple of years to run it into the ground."

I wonder how recent this interview is.

I think we're discussing this in about a million different threads... I bet Teral'll be along with a link any minute now.

Why, certainly:

Simpsons cancelled - good news for Futurama fans? (closed)
What will Matt Groening do now? (alive and kicking)

Those in totally differant boards. How am I supposed to know what I say on one board is going on in another. Blast it all.

I have to admit, Binder has a point.

The only other threads in this board related to The Simpsons are the season 13 thread that discusses that season and the guest star thread, so I don't see why we can't have one topic here and one in general. Plus seeing as how this is the TV thread, this piece of news does make more sense in the TV board.

I believe this interview was released this Tuesday. That statements by Matt were creating a lot of controversy. I even found a extract of that interview in my local newspaper(and that's in Costa Rica).

Groening has already retracted his statements.

He said that whenever he is asked how much longer The Simpsons will go on he answers "about two years", and has been for a few years now, according to today's Telegraph.
