"I think it will be the biggest opportunity the program has had," Oakley told Digital Trends. He added that while The Simpson It still works well on television, be aware that the younger public consumes media in another way. "I hope that especially for people under 20, it will provide a rebirth," he said.
According to Oakley, the best 15-year-olds "are barely familiar" with The Simpson, because it has never reached services streaming, unlike similar animated programs, including Futurama Y Bob’s Burgers.
Take the The Simpsonto the streaming It is not an easy task.
