The creators of world's longest running scripted TV show have some pretty interesting plans for their milestone episode and reveal even more at their panel at San Diego Comic – Con this year
Returning for its 27th season this Autumn, The Simpsons is going to pass the incredible milestone of 600 episodes over the coming months – and at a panel as part of San Diego Comic–Con, we got a few clues as to what we could expect.
Executive producer Al Jean and show creator Matt Groening revealed that the episode is to be the 27th 'Treehouse of Horror'. "At the beginning of the episode, we have a Hunger Games parody," Jean said. "You may see Maggie dressed up covered in guns."
He continued by unveiling some of the guest stars that are to grace the episode, including Sarah Silverman, Drew Carey and Kelsey Grammer.
But that wasn't all the panel had to offer. When asked about the possibility of reviving fan favourite Futurama Groening responded that, "Futurama lives in pod form". But he did then add: "We'd love to bring Futurama back. We would love to do it, and perhaps we'll do it someday."
Furthermore, they talked a little bit about the possibility of a sequel to 2007's The Simpsons Movie, Al Jean said "We talk about it, but if we do it we only want to do it if it's going to be really good. We would never do it just to cash in, so if it comes out it's because we believe in it."
That's not a 'no'... We all live in hope.
