The End of the Simpsons?

That's not the point of this article. (h/t The Corner) Rather it's announcing plans for a Simpsons movie.
"The Simpsons" is about to get bigger - with a film being planned on the cult TV cartoon character Homer Simpson and his family.

The show's main voice actors have all signed up for the project. The creator of the series, Matt Groening, is thrilled with the film script, reports entertainment portal IMDB.
However, frequently series are drawing to an end (X-Files, Star Trek TNG) when they announce the creation of a movie. Perhaps because it's a sign of writer fatigue (with enough energy for one big push) or perhaps the show then pales in comparison to the movie it's rare that a series continues for long after a movie announcement.

South Park ad children shows are the notable exception to my generalization, but I found myself watching South Park less after the movie release.
