Let's get started…

7. Nuclear Conflict between US and China

The year 2023 is a significant date in the Simpsons lore because it marks the date of a nuclear conflict between the US and China. In one of the episodes, a TV reporter is seen stating that a nuclear weapon has been released by China and will hit the US beaches within the next hour. After the news aired in the episode, the characters are seen rushing to the basement of their home.

While there have been no direct conflicts against major powers, there has been a growing sense of apprehension about a possible superpower conflict. If this does happen, then the US and China are the most likely candidates. And it looks like the Simpsons are predicting that this conflict will happen in 2023. No one knows yet what will trigger this horrible conflict.

6. Elon Musk's Cybertruck

Elon Musk's cyber truck is one of the most significant inventions in the automotive world. It's a self-driving truck capable of hauling 3500 pounds of cargo.

Up until today, these are only manufactured in small quantities. However, in an episode of the show, these cybertrucks are seen driving around the town.

This prediction is made in the sixth episode of the thirty-fourth season of The Simpsons. The episode's name is Treehouse of Horror XXXIII. In this episode, the Simpsons family is seen to be living in a version of the Westworld.

In a shot, employees of an amusement park pile up broken robots and load them on a cybertruck. This cybertruck is a replica of what Musk has manufactured. So, it can be interpreted that by 2023, cybertruck will be mass-produced in the real world.

This could be a reference to the fact that Musk promised to have 83,000 Cybertrucks delivered by 2023. Musk also claimed that by 2024, his company would be selling 250,000 pickups a year.

5. Realistic Holograms

Holograms have been a part of science fiction for as long as we can remember. But what's interesting is that the holograms we see on The Simpsons are incredibly realistic.

In one of the episodes, Bart is seen living at Springfield elementary. As he is really into Itchy & Scratchy throughout the series, he is seen reading the same movie in the form of a hologram! Yes, that's true; there is no TV visible in his room, just a hologram projector.

Is it possible that futuristic hologram technology will finally be successful in 2023?

In the real world, holograms are very different. They are still unrealistic and 3D-looking. But by 2023, the technology might be advanced enough that holograms will look exactly like the person who is speaking.

This could suggest that holographic technology is rapidly improving. This would be an impressive feat for technology that is still being developed.

4. Economic Crash

The Simpsons have correctly predicted a few economic crashes over the years. One of the earliest was when they predicted a Russian downturn in the 1990s which really happened in 2014.

In the episode of an opening season, a Russian representative is seen sitting in an Olympic committee debate. He is seen receiving notifications about the falling worth of rubles, which is Russian currency.

This is what happened in 2014 when the oil and gas prices fell drastically, which severely affected the Russian economy and pushed it into a crisis.

So when will the next economic crash occur?

The show's writers have predicted that there will be another financial meltdown in 2023. In the 24th season of The Simpsons, Homer is seen sitting with a friend in a prep school. Homer appears to be worried and says that he doesn't think society could survive the economic collapse.

This is a particularly interesting prediction because it comes at the same time that the show's predictions for an apocalyptic zombie event are supposed to come true.

Yes, they also predicted an apocalyptic zombie event! But we will come to that later

3. Cloning

The Simpsons have predicted we would have the technology to clone humans in 2023.

In the 18th episode of season 25, Days of Future Future, several clones of Homer are created. Every time he dies, he is brought back to life by creating a clone of his.

So, will it be possible next year?

While scientists have been successful in finding the methods and the technology to clone a human embryo, these methods and technology are still a long way off from being used. There is no known research center in the world at the moment which is trying to clone an actual human being. But who knows what will happen next year, right?

2. Journey To Mars

The best sci-fi predictions are the ones that are subtle. This makes them easier to disguise in a show that is meant to be lighthearted and silly. One example of this is The Simpsons' prediction for the journey to Mars.

In the 16th episode of season 27, a private company called Exploration Incorporated is looking for the first colonists for Mars, and then they really send humans on a journey to Mars.

And now, Musk's Mars mission is at its peak. It's likely that Elon Musk will make significant progress on his Mars mission by 2023. Musk has promised that he will place the first human being on Mars within the next five years, and he will colonize the planet by this decade.

1. Zombies

The Simpsons also made a wild prediction about the rise of zombies. The show predicts more than a few times that zombies will come out and dominate society.

In one episode, where Homer goes to prep school, we see a meteorite of zombies speeding towards Earth. We also see a zombie apocalypse happening in Springfield in the episode Treehouse of Horror XX.

However, in the later episodes, we see that zombies are living with humans and have become a part of society. Is this a glimpse of the future? Will we see a day when zombies are in charge? Well, next year will tell.

So, guys, these are the seven things that The Simpsons predicted for 2023.

Do you think these will come true next year? Have you noticed any other hidden predictions in the recent episodes of this sitcom? Let us know in the comment section below.
