This time, is it for good?
Surprising news this week: in the season premiere of the upcoming season 27 this fall, Homer and Marge will become legally separated.
In the episode, Homer falls for a pharmacist, who will be voiced by guest star Lena Dunham, creator and star of the controversial HBO series "Girls." In the episode, Homer goes searching for a treatment for his narcolepsy, when he encounters the bewitching pharmacist.
Of course, technically the Simpsons were divorced for 12 years, due to a continuity error. And they have separated unofficially several times over the years (perhaps most prominently when Marge left Homer in the Simpsons movie).
Showrunner Al Jean also divulged that in the Halloween episode, Sideshow Bob will kill Bart. This is shaping up to be a heck of a season all around!
