A few years ago, LEGO surprisingly released some sets for The Simpsons TV show along with a couple of Collectible Minifigure series. The theme was very short-lived but it was pretty popular among fans. As we know by now, Disney acquired 21st Century Fox earlier this year so in turn, Disney owns The Simpsons. You’ll be able to stream the series on Disney+ when it launches in November.
The 2019 D23 Expo was this past weekend and there was a Simpsons panel there where creator Matt Groening was one of the guests. Of course, there was a Q&A session and it was reported that someone asked if there will be more LEGO The Simpsons sets and he responded “it is likely.” I’m not sure if the question was really asked but it was news that someone forwarded to me a few days ago and it’s worth taking a look at.
Obviously, LEGO had a partnership with Fox to produce some sets including a BrickHeadz set that had a very short shelf life last year so it’s a matter of whether LEGO intends to make more or not. LEGO also has a great relationship with Disney as well and I don’t see why they couldn’t reach out for a possibility to make more sets. Also the original tweet was deleted so that is a major red flag. Either it was a fake tweet and they decided not to keep it up or it they were asked to remove it because the creators weren’t supposed to talk about it. I honestly don’t know so just treat this as a very long shot rumor that has a very slim chance of happening.
