What we learnt about The Simpsons at San-Diego Comic Con 2017!

The Simpsons hit San Diego Comic Con on Saturday to release some exciting news about the show and the upcoming Season 29. The panel opened with a Trump short, included a live Q&A animation with Bart (to welcome Nancy Cartwright to the panel) and released some intriguing information.

General Information …

The first news that got fans excited was that they are going to be releasing full seasons of the show starting with Season 18, to be released on December 2cd (and include full commentaries, special features and deleted scenes like all seasons released on DVD).
The cover was revealed and Fat Tony takes centre place …

Season 18 DVD to be released on December 5!!!!

It was announced that there will be a Bob Burger couch gag (due to being fans of the show) and Matt Groening announced a second couch gag by guest animator Bill Plympton. This was the first one he did for the show …

Upcoming Episode Announcements …

David Silverman, the Simpsons Movie director, announced an episode that he’s working on where the Simpsons family travel to JazzFest in New Orleans.

Al Jean announced an episode set in the future focused on Lisa where “You see where she might wind up, and she might end up with a woman”.

Jean also teased a Krusty the Clown episode which is a re-imagining of Stephen King’s ‘It’ – which sounds amazing!

And fans that visited the panel got to see a sneak peek of this year’s Treehouse of Horror with a segment titled “The Exor-Sis” and features Maggie getting possessed.

As well as that, Matt Groening teased a Futurama announcement to come at the end of the month (hopefully near my birthday!) and I can’t wait.

  1. Did you actually get to go to Comic-Con? Wow!

  2. I’m looking forward to the IT episode … will it be part of the THOH episode or a stand alone episode?

    Also excited about Jaime from GOT making an appearance.

    • They didn’t say whether it will be a segment or full episode.
      I’m hoping it’s like “Halloween of Horror” – a Halloween themed, canon full episode
