Simpsons Movie Sequel Ages Away

Al Jean, executive producer and show runner on “The Simpsons,” has admitted to The New York Post that a “Simpsons Movie” sequel is a long way off.

Jean says “We would only do a sequel if we believed it was a movie that had to be made, just like we did with the first one. We wouldn’t want to do it just because the first one was successful, or because we wanted to make money off of a movie. We’d only do it if we had a script that we thought was great [and] there’s no script at this point.”

“The Simpsons Movie” has grossed more than $175 million in the U.S. and is on track to rake in $500 million internationally. The 19th season premieres September 23rd.
