After the news in May that Harry Shearer had left The Simpsons (here), many wondered how the show could possibly continue without the voice of Mr. Burns, Smithers, Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner and many, many more.

Seems there was no need for alarm as Shearer is coming back after all.

FOX has confirmed that Harry Shearer has now signed the same contract as the other five members of the core voice cast and is now set to lend his talents through the show’s 30th season.

This means that Shearer, along with Hank Azaria, Dan Castellaneta, Nancy Cartwright, Julie Kavner and Yeardley Smith is on $300,000 an episode starting in the new season, 27 fact-fans.

What do you think? Should he have come back? Or maybe he should have stuck to his guns? Let us know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
