What happens when the creator of “The Simpsons” returns to the series, and how will he handle the departure of a character?
Matt Groening will no longer appear in the series after this season, and his last episodes will air on Jan. 31.
It’s a tough decision for the actor and his fans, as the show’s first season was so successful that it inspired the cult comedy “The Office,” which aired on NBC from 1989-2000.
Groening is a prolific writer, and the showrunner behind such popular shows as “Cheers” and “Friends.”
But he has also worked on several smaller shows, including “The Smurfs” and his own NBC comedy “Totally Biased.”
But it will be Groening who will leave his mark on the “Simpsons” legacy, and it will take some time for the show to come to an end.
