The Simpsons is getting Harry Shearer back. Woo hoo, Mr. Burns is back! And so are the voices of Ned Flanders, Smithers, Lenny, Seymour Skinner, Dr. Hibbert, Kent Brockman, Reverend Lovejoy, and Otto. Excellent.

Shearer left the show almost two months ago, tweeting "I wanted what we've always had: the freedom to do other work." But money's good too. His new contract is worth $300,000 per episode, and will run for four seasons.
