LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - After 23 seasons, The Simpsons may be saying goodbye.
20th Century Fox TV and the showâ€™s voice actors are currently in contract negotiations, though it appears that no agreement has been â€“ or will be â€“ made.
The studio is reportedly threatening to axe the show if the leading voice actors, who each earn approximately $8 million a year, do not agree to cut their paychecks by 45%.
â€œWe believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model,â€ 20th Century Fox TV said in a statement released Tuesday.
