The Simpsons to End?

The Simpsons to end?

The Simpsons will end?: Unforgettable animated characters Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie.

The Simpsons, might stop production after the 23rd season ends next spring, reports the Daily Beast. The future of the long-running animated sitcom is reportedly in jeopardy because of a dispute of salary negotiations between the six main voice actors, Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer. Apparently the network rejected The Simpsons (voice) actors’ proposal last week to take a 30 percent pay cut in exchange for a percentage of the show’s back-end profits.

“Fox is taking the position that unless they can cut the production costs really drastically, they’ll pull the plug on new shows. The show has made billions in profits over the years and will continue to do so as far as the eye can see down the road. The actors are willing to take a pay cut of roughly a third, but that’s not good enough for Fox.”-a source told The Daily Beast.

Fox Television spokesman said that The Simpsons, which was created by Matt Groening and James L. Brooks, might end and cannot continue “under its current financial model” but insisted they have not yet called a halt to negotiations.

“23 seasons in, The Simpsons is as creatively vibrant as ever and beloved by millions around the world. We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model. We are hopeful that we can reach an agreement with the voice cast that allows The Simpsons to go on entertaining audiences with original episodes for many years to come.”-the spokesman said about the rumored end of the show.

The mega popular animated sitcom first aired in December 1989. So is the end unavoidable?
