4 Simpsons Predictions that came true by 2021
- The Omicron Variant
Fans of The Simpsons claim that the animation foresaw the coronavirus pandemic in 1993, with the episode Marge in Chains, which depicts the Osaka Flu conquering Springfield. Following in this vein, viewers feel that the cartoon world was also correct regarding the micron variation, which authorities and the global population are concerned about in 2021.
Aliens from the planet Micron arrive on Earth in Futurama, produced by Matt Groening — who also developed The Simpsons. As a result, fans linked the two shows in order to emphasize this alleged forecast.
- The Metaverse
The episode, titled Holidays of Future Passed, aired on December 11th. It depicts characters in the future. During the presentation, millions of individuals joined via the virtual universe, which was rather exciting.
The whole episode takes place in the digital world, indicating Mark’s goal. Meta’s goal is to “make the metaverse a reality and help people connect, discover communities,” which sounds a lot like a Simpsons episode.
Everyone knows that Mark Zuckerberg made headlines with the new moniker Meta, although Simpsons prophesied “the future of the social media network metaverse” more than a decade ago.
- Daenerys Targaryen’s plot twist in Game of Thrones
This one goes to all GOT fans out there.
In 2017, on a season 29 episode of “The Simpsons” titled “The Serfsons,” which spoofs numerous parts of “Game of Thrones,” along with the Three-Eyed Raven and the Night King, Homer resurrects a dragon and burns down a settlement.
Fans pointed out the uncannily similarity to the episode of “Thrones,” in which Daenerys is seen from above torching King’s Landing.
- The Astroworld Tragedy
Another similarity, which has gone particularly popular in TikTok videos, happens in a 1992 episode of “The Simpsons,” in which Homer holds up a copy of the bogus magazine World Weekly News, comparing it to Scott promotional art that went viral the day before the deadly Astroworld performance.
