Smithers to come out to Mr Burns in The Simpsons
“Simpsons” executive producer AL JEAN says that Mr. Burns’ assistant Waylon Smithers will FINALLY come out of the closet sometime this season.
He SAID “In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously [his boss] Mr. Burns doesn’t.”
And no, it doesn’t sound like there will be any romance between them . . .
The show’s executive producer also said that he expects the show to end after its 30th season, but nothing is official yet . . . and he did leave the door open for it to go on past that mark. It’s currently in Season 27, and it’s been renewed for a 28th.
By the way, he also denied that they’ve ever seriously considered having Homer and Marge divorce.
