Want to know the future? Ask The Simpsons

Coronavirus, murder hornets and more The Simpsons predicted way back in 1993 what would be in 2020.

Every now and again, something will happen in this world of ours that already happened in a different world. That would be the universe of The Simpsons, the iconic Fox sitcom that some consider the greatest television show of all time.

On numerous occasions, we’ve shouted “The Simpsons did it!” to actual current events.

The latest in a long line of creepy coincidences involves a classic Season 4 episode that somehow managed to predict the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of so-called “murder hornets” in one fell swoop.
