Come on out, Mr. Smithers. We're all waiting for you.

The Simpsons new season, which just began Sept. 27, might have some lasting changes to the cast. Specifically, Mr. Smithers just might admit his sexuality to Mr. Burns.

It's long been known that Mr. Smithers is gay, for a while it was used as the only aspect of that character, but it's remained hidden from the dastardly Mr. Burns for the duration of the two's working relationship.



Speaking to TV Line, Executive Producer Al Jean revealed a little teaser about what's to come in the 27th season:

"In Springfield now, most people know he's gay, but obviously Burns doesn't," Jean notes. "We deal with that in two episodes. … We actually do a lot with Smithers this year; he gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options."



I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

But don't worry Mr. Smithers. It gets better.

Okilly Dokilly is a metal band based entirely off of Ned Flanders

Some bands just gotta have a gimmick, whether it's Gwar's costumes or Kiss' make up. For Pheonix's Okilly Dokilly, they are doubling down on The Simpsons' very Christian, very polite neighbor Ned Flanders.

Head Ned, Red Ned, Thread Ned, Stead Ned and Bled Ned make up what they describe as "the world's only Nedal band" and boy are they all about the puns. Obviously 'Okilly Dokilly' is just a metal riff on the classic Flanders catch phrase 'Okily dokily'.

They're even committed to dressing the part as well, although it doesn't seem like all the members where willing to commit to the trademark mustache (or 'push broom' as he calls it).



According to their Facebook page, most of their songs are based off of Ned Flanders quotes.

They will play their first show Sept. 5 if you're in the Phoenix area. They certainly know how to hype it up.

We're playing our first show. It will be Nedal. You will experience Nedal. You will know Nedal. Nedal will know you.

More details to come. Hold your dang diddly horses.





You can listen to some of their surprisingly serious scream-o songs here:

The Simpsons always seems to be predicting things. Let's just hope that got this one wrong.

An episode from 2000 imagines a future in which Lisa has inherited the Oval Office from a "President Trump," and things aren't looking so hot.

Just look at how he left the finances.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you mashed up The Simpsons and Akira? Well, the folks at Bartkira Roadshow have done just that! The video above is a recreation of the Akira trailer using the world and characters of the Simpsons.

It's terrifying.

Politicians are getting savvy on how to try and talk to them there young people.

If you're trying to convince people that you are the best to influence domestic policy and forward an international presence, you need to make sure citizens hear your varying Simpsons impressions.

Isn't this just, like, surreal weird?

It's obviously some public relations move to 'open up and show the people how much darn fun you like to have' and that sincere attempt at being human makes him seem so much less human, right?

Or not, maybe it's just some guy havin' fun. 

It's still super weird. And worth watching.

It's been a rough week for The Simpsons. First Harry Shearer announces he's leaving and then Rick and Morty pay a visit for a couch gag which goes terribly wrong.

Hopefully the show can recover.

Or end or whatever.

Rick and Morty is great.

Harry Shearer, the voice of Ned Flanders, Mr Burns, Smithers, Principal Skinner, and Lenny has left the Simpsons after decades with the show.  Reportedly related to issues with "back-end and merchandising," Shearer announced his departure from the show on Twitter:



It seems like his departure is not on terrible terms, but came down to a contract issue limiting Shearer's ability to lend his talents to other projects.  
Here's hoping the show can find a perfect new voice for Mr Burns; it certainly won't be the same without chearer.
