Words Ailis Mara

Harry Shearer, voice Mr.Burns, Seymour Skinner and Ned Flanders, has quit The Simpsons after 25 years.

The US actor has indicated that a contract dispute led him to leave the show and that signing up to a new series would have interfered with other projects. The shows executive producer James L. Brooks suggested that the “show will go on”, though “Harry will not be part of it”.

 

 

This news follow Fox network’s announcement that it had commissioned two more series of The Simpsons and will cast doubt over a show which has struggled with maintaining its quality over recent years.
