Harry Shearer leaves the Simpsons over contract distribute!
What will happen now? Will all these characters be written out of the show?
US Actor Harry Shearer leaves the role of the well known Mr Burns, Ned Flanders, Mr Smithers, Seymour Skinner, Otto and many more characters. He tweeted saying, signing up to a new series will stop him from doing other work. He started hinting his exit by claiming a lawyer for the executive producer said the show would "go on".
Last week Fox had confirmed that the Simpsons will be returning for another 2 series! Can it really continue now without these characters?
"Show will go on, Harry will not be part of it, wish him the best,' " Shearer tweeted, adding in a second post: "This because I wanted what we've always had: the freedom to do other work. Of course, I wish him the very best." - James L Brooks Lawyer
Harry thanks fans for all the support.
Will the Simpsons be the same again? We'll have to wait and see when Seasons 27 ans 28 premier.
