The Simpsons, with over 700 episodes aired since 1989, has become a cult series with millions of fans who know its stories by heart. However, so much content has been created with the yellow family, and some episodes have even been turned into predictions which, in many cases, have come true. So for the year 2022, the creator of the animated series, Matthew Groening, laid out new contributions that can happen to our planet in the not too distant future.
So here are the Simpsons’ super predictions for this year, or in the near future.
In a 90s episode of The Simpsons, in addition to smartphones and a prototype Zoom, Homer and Marge had a device that allowed them to eat virtual holograms. This makes us think of the metaverse, we will know later??
The truth is that the debate over indiscriminate arms sales in the United States is hotter than ever lately. Especially after the unstoppable wave of spontaneous assassins in schools and mass events in the country.
In fact, the State of California recently issued a federal ordinance prohibiting large-capacity ammunition magazines. And indeed, there is an episode of The Simpsons where all the weapons are destroyed.
We may not see it in 2022, but it’s one of the predictions that seem to be coming true in at least some places, and promises to be a trend in 2022.
In another one of those futuristic episodes that make us think the show’s writers are seers, the show predicted flying cars for us.
What’s troubling is that the Simpsons gave an approximate date (more or less around those years). And in a 2005 episode called “Future drama,” we showed a flying car.
Yup, just like the Jetson One, the personal electric aerial vehicle that should start hitting the market in 2022, and that you could buy if you had around $92,000.
As the end of the coronavirus was already beginning to be felt, the omicron variant arrived to shake the world. And in the cartoon “The Simpson”, there is talk of a re-epidemic of the coronavirus.
So here is a prediction that no one wants to come true, as Springfield’s family predicted global quarantine, due to a malignant virus.
In one episode, motivated by her desire to reach the Red Planet, Lisa makes the decision to sign up for a space trip to Mars. Given the decision, Marge is upset and all the members of the Simpson family find themselves in the adventure as well. This is similar to Elon Musk’s proposals with his SpaceX project.
Like her father, Ivanka Trump is supposed to run for President of the United States according to The Simpsons. In the series, mentions of this fact have been for Ivanka to come to power before or after her father. In real life, Ivanka Trump could be her dad’s running mate in 2024.
The Simpsons’ latest big prediction in 2022 is what will happen at the twenty-second FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
According to the family, the final will be between the teams of Spain and Brazil where, with the help of arbitration, the South Americans will conquer Arab lands and they will obtain their sixth world title.
