In an interview with TVLine, Simpsons showrunner Al Jean reveals that the show’s 27th season will be a big one for Waylon Smithers, Boo-urns?

In another interview with THR, Jean also states that he thinks it’s possible that The Simpsons, which was just renewed through season 28, could end after its 30th season. “I wouldn’t be stunned if we stopped at 28 but my bet is on at least 30,” he said. Of course, “at least 30” could mean anything, so fans’ dreams of 60 seasons and a movie remain undimmed.
