Moments From “The Simpsons” That Accurately Predicted The Future

Writers on The Simpsons seem to have an uncanny ability to predict the future. Roughly 19 years ago, an episode predicted that Donald Trump would become a US president, but this wasn't the only prediction they made.

Another episode from two years ago predicted a major plot twist in the last season of Game of Thrones. But don't worry, there's no spoilers here.

For over 27 years, The Simpsons has been creating new episodes and making wild predictions that become a reality. Are they time travelers? Probably not, but that doesn't make their abilities any less cool. Here are some of the wildest predictions the writers were able to make since the show launched in 1989.
