    This isn’t related to this quote but there’s no where else to express this. The table read for the season 30 production cycle began and much to my chagrin I noticed that the production code started with the letter Y. Why does this matter? Since season 10 the p-codes began with letters with some letters omitted (I, O, Q, and U). I was hoping to see that the letter Y would have been omitted too and that the season 30 p-codes would begin with the letter Z, the first real indicator that season 30 would be that last, but no. It doesn’t mean that season 30 cannot be the last, but if the p-codes started with the letter Z it would have looked much more likely.

    When someone asked on his Twitter feed if the show would go on after season 30 Al Jean said that the thinks there will be more in his opinion. Jesus. What is the point? On April 22nd the show will beat Gunsmoke for the most number of episodes for a prime time American show. There aren’t any other notable records The Simpsons could break anytime soon. So few people even watch these worthless new episodes. Is it just to keep the Simpsons franchise alive? Is it that people just need to be aware, they don’t have to watch it, just be aware that the show is still in production to buy merchandise and go to the theme parks?

      I think it’s something to do with money, but you didn’t hear it from me!

      I never really understood the code thing, and why did they omit certain letters?

      And I’m pretty sure by now that they’re going to continue bleeding this show dry until they finally start losing money off it. Which, frankly, should have happened a long time ago, but there’s no accounting for bad taste.

        They omited a few letters to avoid confusion. O could be read as a zero.

        IIRC they also started using four letters and two numbers instead of two letters and two numbers in the transition from 9 (last single-digit season) to 10.

      But we knew Season 30 wouldn’t be the last. Fox requested a full season, not a partial season to fill the remaining slots after the leftovers from 29.

        Al has said before that he anticipates that the last episode will be a Christmas show. If that were the case the seven holdover episodes they always have would carry over to about Christmas time 2019. It would be as scheduled a partial season 31 but part of the season 30 production cycle.

        Every year I always keep my fingers crossed in hoping that they’ll air more episodes in a season which would indicate that they’re burning off the holdover episodes in anticipation of the end being near. But no.

It would be as scheduled a partial season 31 but part of the season 30 production cycle.

          So, if that scenario played out, it would be like what happened with “American Dad,” where the last three episodes of season 10 (“Roger Passes the Bar,” “A Boy Named Michael”, and “Blagnarst: A Love Story”) aired as their own mini-season, but were really the start of a new season (or, in the case of The Simpsons, would be the tail end of a previous season).
