The Simpsons' Homer and Marge are headed to Splitsville!
"In the premiere, it's discovered after all the years Homer has narcolepsy and it's an incredible strain on the marriage," executive producer Al Jean told Variety. "Homer and Marge legally separate, and Homer falls in love with his pharmacist, who's voiced by Lena Dunham."
Um, say what?!
The long-running Fox cartoon is heading into its 27th season, so maybe they needed to shake things up? Also on deck for the next installment are more Girls cameos, the return of Spider Pig, the "death" of Bart Simpson at the hands Sideshow Bob and an episode about Bart that's inspired by Boyhood.
As for the prospect of doing another Simpsons movie, don't hold you breath... for now. "The movie was such a time-intensive operation, it pulled a lot away from the show," Jean said. "I would rather end the show whenever that happens before doing another movie. It's unlikely there'll be another Simpsons feature while the show is being produced."
