Is The Simpsons coming to an end?

The long-running show just opened its 27th season this month and has been ordered for a 28th, but word is end times are coming.

When the topic of a 30th season came up, showrunner Al Jean told The Hollywood Reporter

"It's quite possible that we don't have to go through the whole negotiation for 30," Jean said. "I wouldn't be stunned if we stopped at 28, but my bet is on at least 30. But then you'd have to resign them again. If you made me pick one, I'd say the likeliest is ending after 30, but I've been wrong before. I thought five seasons was good when I got there."

It's not definitive, so we'll have to wait and see.
