Ay, caramba. How on earth has The Simpsons been able to look into the future and predict what's to come? From Donald Trump running for President to the Covid-19 pandemic, the parallels are mind-blowing. Well, now they are lifting the lid on the top secret in their upcoming Season 34.

Showrunner Matt Selman told Deadline how they managed to see into the future. He said: "We have another crazy conceptual episode that explains how The Simpsons know the future. 

"It's a conceptual episode with lots of crazy stuff in it, but it does an explanation of how The Simpsons can predict the future."

An amazing 728 episodes later, The Simpsons is the longest-running primetime series with the best yet to come, according to Selman.

"We have two Halloween episodes this year, two Treehouse of Horror episodes. One is three scary stories like we always do, but very scary and weird."

The Treehouse of Horror is 'an anime parody of Death Note' which Selman is 'so excited about'.

The second Treehouse of Horror will be a 'full-length episode that is a parody of Stephen King's book IT with, get ready for it, Krusty as Pennywise'.

Selman added: "We have our season premiere where Homer gets into a conspiracy cabal while hunting down a missing turtle.

"I'm very excited about one where Krusty has a kind of nice-guy-type afternoon syndicated Ellen DeGeneres talk show that surprisingly goes awry."

Actress Melissa McCarthy is guest starring as a 'kid who's Homer's rival for love from Grandpa. She's plays kind of a quirky kid who has Grandpa's love and Homer's like, 'Why does Grandpa like this kid? And why didn't he like me?' It's really emotional as well'.

Season 34 premiere will air on Sunday, September 25.
