Harry Shearer won't be leaving The Simpsons!

Phew!
Good news, everyone! Oops, wrong Matt Groening show. The voice of Flanders, Mr. Burns, Smithers, and more will not be leaving The Simpsons after all. Last May, Harry Shearer made an announcement on Twitter which sure sounded like he was leaving the show. 
 
However, in between then and now, Shearer and the show's executives have been able to come to an agreement. Shearer and the other main cast members have just inked a deal that they will stay with the show through the next two seasons (27 and 28) with options for the following two seasons (29 and 30).
 
Eeeexcellent.
