Yesterday Digital Spy put up an interview with longtime Simpsonista David Mirkin. (He worked on the show from the beginning pretty much through the start of Zombie Simpsons and then on-again, off-again in more recent seasons.) It’s an interesting read, including the welcome information that we’re a long way off from a second movie. Here’s the part that rankles:
Matt Groening said that he doesn’t see an ending in sight for the show. Do you agree?
“I pray for an end! I would like to meet another human being who doesn’t work on the show! And maybe say ‘hi’ to a girl. It’s all up to the fans – as long as they’re telling us that they’re happy, they like it and they want more, our feeling is that we will endeavour to give them new stuff.
Ten thousand Thank Yous for all your work and we love you (in whatever way you’re most comfortable with), but please understand that we are un-happy and would not like any more.
