Excellent: Harry Shearer, the Voice of Mr. Burns and Others Will Return to ‘The Simpsons’

Simpsons fans rejoice. Harry Shearer, the voice of Springfield residents including Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Rev. Lovejoy, Principal Skinner, Kent Brockman, Otto and others is returning for at least two more season of the show.

Back in May, Shearer announced that he was leaving the animated sitcom after nearly 25 years. Thanks to some recent negotiations, Shearer—and all of his beloved characters—will return after all. According to EW, the full cast is back on board after producers agreed to a deal worth at least $300,000 an episode.
