Do drills stop coming back eventually?

Asked 8 years ago
I understand that the drills "expire" and come back every few days to help you remember the material. However will there be a point when it will stop expiring the points gained from (for example) basic hiragana? Or will I be asked about what "あ" is for the rest of eternity every few days? Thank you!

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

In SRS the interval between answers will go up and up and up. Meaning if you answer something correctly now, and it doesn't show for a week, then next time after that it will be gone for two weeks (basically). This means if you answer something correctly every time, it will hop up to two weeks, then a month, then two months, then four months, then eight months, then sixteen. In the end you will effectively stop answering what あ is. That is, unless NM works a lot differently from other SRS
