The Simpsons Newest Future Mocked The Show’s Time Problem

Warning: Spoilers for The Simpsons season 34, episode 9.In The Simpsons season 34, the show made fun of the fact that its future episodes are no longer able to mention what year they are set in — and there’s a good reason for that. The Simpsons has been on the air for a very long time. Despite this, characters in The Simpsons rarely die and never age, which can become a real problem for the show’s internal consistency from time to time. In one classic outing, The Simpsons season 6, episode 19, “Lisa’s Wedding,” Lisa got married in 2010 whereas in a later outing, The Simpsons season 29, episode 8, “Mr. Lisa’s Opus,” she was depicted as a one-year-old in the same year.

The Simpsons has been on the air for so long that its earliest futures are now in the past – a time problem that season 34 parodies with a clever gag.
