Production[edit]

In 2014, James L. Brooks stated that 20th Century Fox had approached him and requested a second film based on The Simpsons. He added that there were no immediate plans, stating, "We've been asked to [develop it], but we haven't. We're doing a lot of other stuff."[1]

In December 2014, just prior to the broadcast of the episode "The Man Who Came to Be Dinner", series writer Al Jean wrote on Twitter that the episode (which had been produced in 2012 and was originally set to air in 2013) had been held back by himself and Brooks because it was being considered for adaptation into a sequel film as the episode was "cinematic".[2][3] Jean later expanded that there was the fear of the potential film being considered "not canonical" with the TV series[3] and the potential backlash of overcoming it by using a "memory wipe".[4]

In July 2017, during the 10th anniversary of The Simpsons Movie, Jean and David Silverman said that a sequel film was in the early stages of development and stressed the toll production of the first picture took on the entire staff.[5] On August 10, 2018, it was reported that a sequel is in development.[6]

On July 22, 2019, series creator Matt Groening stated that he has "no doubts" that The Walt Disney Company, which acquired 21st Century Fox early that year, will likely produce a sequel one day.[7]
