Top 10 Simpsons Predictions for the Next 20 Years

The Simpsons’ predictions have always confused fans of the show because the creators sometimes wrote long in advance of events that eventually came to pass. Now that we know that the writers of The Simpsons predict the future, it’s time to look into the crystal ball to find out what will happen to us in the next few years.

1. A global war against China in 2031

Which episode ? : Episode 11 of season 28

When Marge discovers a Japanese method of tidying up (exactly like Marie Kondo’s), she decides to throw away all the mess lying around their house. Homer tells her that she could have at least kept her 2014 calendar with one joke a day because in the year 2031 the days will fall like in 2014. He clarifies that it would have been useful for them to have jokes to entertain themselves. after World War III against China.

2. Robots will take over

Which episode ? : Episode 17 of season 23

In an episode that parodies the film I, Robot, Mr. Burns decides to replace the employees of his nuclear plant with robots, but of course, the latter end up taking control of the plant, then of the city. If that happens to us, we will have looked for it because there have been enough films to warn us.

3. A virus in contaminated meat will cause a zombie invasion

Which episode ? : Episode 4 of season 21

When Krusty Burger releases a new sandwich with meat from beef that has eaten beef, Lisa suspects it’s a bad idea. She is right since those who consume it immediately turn into zombies. This is not so improbable since it was by feeding animal meal to oxen that the mad cow crisis developed at the end of the 80s. This disease is a degenerative infection of the central nervous system which causes dementia. We hope the human has learned from his mistakes and won’t feed beef patties to cows.

4. A President is going to shoot his wife

Which episode ? : Episode 21 of season 14

After doing stupid things like dirty little rascals, parents Bart and Mulhouse enroll them in groups of young people. Bart goes to the “Preteen Indian Warriors” and Mulhouse to the “Juniors of the Cavalry”; they then become competitors and Bart is not happy when he sees in the newspaper that the group from Mulhouse has taken charge of cleaning up the city. What is much more interesting is the headline that can be seen under this article in the newspaper: “The president shoots his wife”. For the moment, no American president has realized this prediction but it may still happen in the next few years.

5. Self-driving cars from Google will cause serious accidents in 2044

Which episode ? : Episode 18 of season 25

In this episode released in 2014, some scenes take place 30 years later; Bart and Lisa, now adults, live in 2044. Bart takes care of his children and he specifies that his wife, Jenda, works at Google. She had to leave urgently, manage a crisis situation: autonomous cars marketed by Google have been hijacked by hackers who cause fatal accidents on the roads. It’s coming soon guys.

6. We can make some pocket money by selling our organs

Which episode ? : Episode 9 of season 23

At Christmas of the year 2041, Bart must spend the day with his children who live the rest of the time with their mother from whom Bart is separated. Just before they arrive via teleportation technology, Bart’s landlord tells him that he’s late paying the rent. Bart replies that he will soon have money because he will sell his second kidney when the first has finished growing back. If the Simpsons can truly predict the future, then it will be possible to regrow organs 20 years from now.

7. Anyone can be cryopreserved in less than 20 years.

Which episode ? : Episode 9 of season 23

Also in 2041, Homer takes his grandchildren to a part of the cemetery to see his father, Abraham Simpson. When the latter learned that he had an incurable disease, he decided to be cryogenized. What is really practical in the series (and which seems difficult to achieve) is that it is possible to bring the frozen person back to life and to re-freeze him immediately after by pressing a button. Much better than a retirement home.

8. The United States will face an unprecedented crime wave in 2030

Which episode ? : Episode 17 of season 11

Bart meets a medium who predicts his future and that of his family. He learns that Lisa will become President of the United States in 2030 and that the country is really screwed up. As a previous government chose to invest in educating young people, children have grown into far too smart and fit young adults. They all become delinquents and the country has never seen such a large crime wave.

9. Our body will vanish when we want to transfer our mind to the metaverse

Which episode ? : Episode 9 of season 23

When Lisa is an adult in 2040, she is married to Milhouse (shame) and has a teenage daughter, Zia, who is far too rebellious. Whenever her mother annoys her, Zia “disconnects” her body from the real world to connect in a virtual world. Her body is then unconscious but her mind is connected to a computer in which she can live. Given how the metaverse evolves, we may not need to wait until 2040 for this to exist.

10. Autonomous robots will be able to provide hospital consultations

Which episode ? : Episode 9 of season 23

The same year, Maggie is pregnant and is going to have an ultrasound at the hospital. Until then, nothing strange, except that it is a robot which provides consultations and the ultrasound is visible directly on the screen which serves as the face of the robot.
