THE Simpsons boss has revealed plans for the last ever episode - and it's a major tear-jerker.

The hit animated sitcom has been running since 1989 and shows no signs of slowing down.

The Simpsons boss has revealed how the show might end, and it's a tear-jerker

The show has featured a number of crossover episodes including the recent The Simpsons in Plusaversary

However, if the end were to come, The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean has revealed the ideas he has for the final episode.

Al previously envisioned the family going to the Christmas pageant they attended in the very first episode.

Elaborating on that during a chat with Digital Spy, he said: ...Well, it might be like the Heisenberg principle, in that now that I've stated it, it's less likely to happen.

...I just thought that the beautiful thing about that would be that the whole show would never have an end. It would be a loop, and you'd never go—....

Al added that animators never want their characters to age or grow, so he felt that sending The Simpsons back round on a loop would be the ...perfect end to the show....

Thankfully for fans, the show has been recommissioned for two further seasons so far.

Recently, The Simpsons has taken part in a number of fun crossovers, including a Star Wars themed one and a collaboration with Marvel.

Speaking about Fox's merger with Disney, which now means The Simpsons is available on Disney+, Al said not much has changed for the writers and execs.

He said: ...When we were bought, we were just told, ...You are who you are. Be yourself. And we'll try to let you do what you do,' and that's what's happened....
