So it looks like it was alllll just a misunderstanding. Skinner, Flanders, Mr. Burns, Smithers and all the others he voices won’t be killed off after all, because Harry Shearer’s contract dispute is over. He will be back, along with the other 5 main voice actors who all just signed on for at least 2 more seasons. Remember the problem was that Shearer said the producers weren’t letting him work on other projects… well apparently the show runner assigned voiceover work to him, and didn’t realize he was on a five-week break from the show. Really? That’s the reason? Apparently!
The Simpsons also just released a clip of making fun of Donald Trump:
