THE SIMPSONS: Harry Shearer Set to Exit

May 14, 2015 by  



THE SIMPSONS was recently renewed for two seasons, but it may be continuing on without one of its most prolific voices.

Harry Shearer — who voices Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Principal Skinner, Reverend Lovejoy, and Smithers, to name a few of his characters — revealed in a series of tweets on Wednesday night that he will be exiting the show.

THE SIMPSONS executive producers James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, and Al Jean released a statement via Fox, saying, “Harry Shearer was offered the same deal the rest of the cast accepted, and passed. The show will go on and we wish him well. Maggie took it hard.”

On Twitter, Jean also said that if Shearer doesn’t return to the series, they’ll recast his roles.
