Season 26 Preview (Mild Spoilers Naturally With Speculation)

Post by missy_misery » Tue Sep 16, 2014 9:25 am

Direct from TV Guide:

The Simpsons adventures continue this fall, beginning Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT with a stellar array of guest voices, including Jane Fonda (The Newsroom), who is featured as Mr. Burns’ girlfriend, Democratic Assemblywoman Maxine Lombard; Willem Dafoe (The Grand Budapest Hotel) as Bart’s new bully-of-a-teacher, Mr. Lassen; and Futurama’s Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Phil LaMarr, Lauren Tom and Tress MacNeille in a crossover episode between the two animated series.

Additional 26th season guest voices include Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Sarah Silverman (A Million Ways to Die in the West), David Hyde Pierce (Frasier), comedian Jeffrey Ross and musician Matthew Sweet. Plus, Judd Apatow (Girls, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) pens a special episode scheduled to air later in the season.


Thoughts:

So I wonder if the Dafoe episode will result in a permanent replacement for Mrs. K being recruited. I hope the ep does SOMETHING to explore what Bart would feel knowing that Edna's dead; I'm glad we at least got to see that Ned's mourning her but, y'know, she did have students and friends.

DHP being listed makes me wonder if
