From Donald Trump becoming president to the coronavirus pandemic, The Simpsons has managed to freakishly predict many things over the decades.
But there’s something in a particular that one of the show’s writers is hoping that the cartoon hasn’t managed to get right – and that’s riots on Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th.
After rioters stormed the US Capitol last week, many Simpsons fans were left convinced that the animation successfully foresaw the ‘civil war’, as an episode that was released last year showed every Springfield resident for themselves as they fought over their newly elected leader.
With Biden’s swearing-in ceremony is just over one week away, producer Al Jean is keeping his fingers crossed that the cartoon hasn’t predicted death and destruction on the big day.
Taking to Twitter, Jean shared a picture of The Simpsons’ forecast for the day, which aired in the 31st Treehouse Of Horror episode.
The grab showed Homer Simpson sat on his roof while kitted out in armour and holding a gun as fires blaze in the background.
‘Don’t make this prediction come true,’ he urged.
Many fans are holding their breath while world waits to see what chaos will unfold in the US over the next few days.
‘Whoa,’ commented one. ‘Simpsons has been eerily accurate making predictions. I think it all starts on the 18th though. Throwing my prediction out there now.’
Meanwhile, another penned: ‘8 days and counting…’
Trump declared that he won’t be attending Biden’s inauguration in his last tweet before he was permanently banned from Twitter.
The Simpsons is available to stream on Disney+.
