Seven weeks ago, we were left with a tweet from the legendary Harry Shearer indicating he would not be returning to the beloved franchise, The Simpsons. The fan nation was in a panic and left not knowing what would become of favorite characters such as Ned Flanders and Mr. Burns.
News broke today that Shearer, along with Dan Castellaneta, Yeardley Smith, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, and Hank Azaria, all signed back on for an additional four seasons at an estimated $300,000 per episode. The main cast is now guaranteed for the 27th and 28th season with the option of a 29th and 30th if the network renews.
Great news for The Simpsons on this fine day! Now, all of us a nerds can calm down.
