The Simpsons has been removed from the chopping block and won’t be axed!
For the active users of Habbox, you may have spotted the article which was recently published mentioning the fact that The Simpsons may be axed! We’re glad to say, negotiations have taken place and The Simpsons will remain for at least another 2 series.
The new contract hasn’t been fully announced yet, but the ‘New York Times’ has confirmed that actors accepted a 30% paycut of their original salary which was £5.2 million. Which means their current salary is £3.64 million. The actors also demanded an increase in shares of merchandising and syndication, increasing their overall share amount. The 30% paycut is a lot less than the original 45% proposed, meaning the actors avoided a hefty decrease on their income.
The Simpsons is the longest running American cartoon show with 23 seasons currently made and 2 more planned for the future. The Simpsons is still ahead of South Park who are in 2nd place and have 16 seasons currently created. Here’s a few facts about The Simpsons for you:
. The Simpsons is broadcasted in more than 100 countries.
. The Simpsons is broadcasted in over 50 languages.
. Ratings for the current series show that 7.1 million people watch The Simpsons in America.
. The only Simpsons episode released in the UK before America was the St Patrick’s Day episode (2011.)
. Dan Castellaneta (the main actor) plays the voice of 26 different characters.
So, it looks like we can continue to enjoy The Simpsons for a few more years. Which is (according to Mr.Burns) “Excellent”.
