Harry Shearer Not Leaving The Simpsons After All

(Radio.com) Don't fret, for Harry Shearer will return to The Simpsons for the next four seasons. Shearer is the voice of Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders on the show, and EW reports that he, along with the show's primary voice actors (Dan Castellaneta, Yeardley Smith, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright and Hank Azaria) have all signed the same contract, guaranteeing they will all return.

Shearer said his dispute with the show was not over money, but rather over his free time. Whatever the reason he returned, Twitter seems to be pretty sure the impetus was Ted Cruz's shockingly terrible Simpsons impressions, released last week. Ted Cruz himself included.

The Texas senator and presidential candidate tweeted "It appears Harry Shearer was so horrified by my Simpsons impressions he agreed to return: bit.ly/1CYK9Dd http://t.co/vHToDfHCXM- Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) July 07, 2015" Read more here.
