According To Composer Danny Elfman

The Simpsons composer Danny Elfman has revealed that the show might be coming to an end after its latest season finishes.

Danny Elfman, the man behind the long-running animated show’s theme tune, made the admission in a new interview. He said –

“Well, from what I’ve heard, it is coming to an end. I don’t know for a fact, but I’ve heard that it will be in its last year”

Speaking about the Fox show’s legacy, Elfman said –

“All I can say is that I’m 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”

He called the show’s success –

“one of the truly big surprises in my life”

As composer, Elfman has an extensive list of credits to his name, including the Tim Burton films Batman, Edward Scissorhands, and Beetlejuice.

The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, began in 1989 and recently began its 31st season.
