The Simpson’s has a history of making bizarre predictions that actually end up coming true. But who would have thought they could have even predicted the Coronavirus?!
Throughout the years the Simpson’s has predicted that Donald Trump would become President, the 2013 Irish horse meat scandal, the discovery of the Higgs Boson equation, the Ebola outbreak and many many more.
The latest prediction that fans have dug out from the 1993 episode ‘Marge in Chains’ is the Coronavirus, the killer virus which has already claimed a number of lives.
In the episode the flu actually comes from Japan, not China, when everyone in Springfield orders these brand new Japanese blenders but quickly people start getting sick. You can check it out here:

Many fans of the show have taken to Twitter to express their disbelief at seeing their favourite episodes come to life:
I don’t know about you but all these crazy predictions make me want to rewatch every episode of the hit animated sit-com just to find out what the future holds!
