You may remember the devastating news a couple of months ago that beloved voice actor Harry Shearer had left The Simpsons. Now it looks like we can say hi-diddily-ho to the voice of Flanders once again, as Simpsons execs have announced his return.

Shearer's voice credits on the show are vast, including Principal Skinner, Waylon Smithers, Kent Brockman, Dr. Hibbert and more. The actor's declaration of his departure sent fans into meltdown, but it now appears their cries of dismay were heard.

Upon his departure, Shearer initially blamed a lack of "freedom to do other work". On Twitter today he thanked Simpsons fans for their support, adding that his return wouldn't have been possible without them.

Shearer, who has starred in the show since 1989, will return for the upcoming season 27.

In the words of Montgomery Burns himself...

Mr Burns Excellent
