Matt Groening stated that he would continue the strip as long as possible, though his production was strained by work on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. There were also accusations that success, fame, marriage and fatherhood had all conspired to dull his edge. Meanwhile, the steady decline of alternative newsweeklies post millenium meant that the market for "underground" stips was steadily diminishing. Finally, on June 20th, 2012 with distribution down to fewer than a dozen papers Groening announced that ''Life in Hell'' would end altogether.
