Well this is pretty big!
The Simpsons just started their 27th season on Sunday and they’ve already started to make some changes to their show!
But a new report confirms that Smithers, Mr. Burns trusty right-hand-man will FINALLY be coming out of the closet! WOO-HOO!
Executive producer Al Jean said in a statement:
“In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously Burns doesn’t. 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.”
This is fantastic news!
We’ve always loved The Simpsons and applaud any show that widens their diversity!
What do you think, are you happy with their decision or should they just keep things they way they are?
