Homer & Marge Will Separate in the 27th Season of The Simpsons

This just sucks

Heartbreaking to report that after 26 years of marriage, Homer and Marge Simpson are going splitsville. Executive producer Al Jean spoke to Variety recently about the new season and dropped the big news.

“In the premiere, it’s discovered after all the years Homer has narcolepsy and it’s an incredible strain on the marriage. Homer and Marge legally separate, and Homer falls in love with his pharmacist, who’s voiced by Lena Dunham,” he said.

He also went on to mention that one Bart-focussed episode will be based on the film ‘Boyhood.’

But obviously the big news is that everyone’s favourite adult-cartoon dysfunctional couple is separating. Just. Not. Cool.
