Simpsons co-creator, Matt Groening revolutionized television and made it acceptable for adult audiences to watch cartoons. The Simpsons became renowned for its lovable characters, emotional storylines and remarkable comedy. While the show hasn’t been that great in recent years, older episodes still hold up remarkably well. Of course, the incredibly talented writer, and artist went onto produce, Futurama, which is one of my favourite programmes of all-time. I particularly enjoy the obscure mathematical references and over-the-top characters like Calculon! According to Deadline, Groening is set to create a brand new animated comedy for Netflix in addition to working on The Simpsons.
As you might expect, details are pretty sparse, and no-one currently knows what the new show will entail. However, this is just another example of Netflix expanding on their exclusive line-up and attempting to procure more subscribers. During the last couple of years, streaming video content has posed a legitimate rival to traditional television broadcasts especially among the younger demographic. It’s always going to be an impossible task to produce a show which comes close to matching the impact of The Simpsons. Nevertheless, Groening’s history is flawless despite Futurama being cancelled far too many times.
Are you looking forward to seeing something new from Matt Groening?
