‘Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening reportedly working on new animated series for Netflix

The show has been commissioned for two seasons and 20 episodes

The Simpsons creator Matt Groening is reportedly working on a new animated series for Netflix.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Netflix has commissioned two seasons and 20 episodes.

The show would be the follow-up to The Simpsons and Groening’s other successful show Futurama.

The new series would be an addition to Netflix’s roster of original animated programming, which includes BoJack Horseman.

Meanwhile, Netflix is to block subscribers from accessing content libraries in different countries by cracking down on the use of “proxies”.

At present, a UK-based subscriber can access Netflix’s US library – which may feature additional TV shows and movies – by using a proxy to effectively pretend that he or she is logging in from the US. However, the streaming service is now taking measures to prevent this crafty switch from happening.

In a post on Netflix’s website, the service’s Vice President of Content Delivery Architecture, David Fullagar, told subscribers: “Some members use proxies or ‘unblockers’ to access titles available outside their territory. To address this, we employ the same or similar measures other firms do. This technology continues to evolve and we are evolving with it.

“That means in coming weeks, those using proxies and unblockers will only be able to access the service in the country where they currently are. We are confident this change won’t impact members not using proxies.”
