Subject: Harry Shearer indicates departure from The Simpsons

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/14/15 at 4:54 am

Harry Shearer has indicated a contract dispute has led to him quitting The Simpsons after more than 25 years.

The US actor, who voices Ned Flanders and Mr Burns, tweeted that signing up to a new series would have stopped him from doing other work.

The actor seemed to signal his exit by claiming a lawyer for the executive producer said the show would "go on".

In a follow-up tweet, Shearer mooted it was "because I wanted what we've always had: the freedom to do other work".
