Smithers Will Finally Admit He Is Gay

Mr Smithers’ sexuality has been a long running joke in The Simpsons for a long, long time and it looks like the character will finally come out as gay.

The show’s executive producer, Al Jean, has said that Smithers’ journey to self acceptance will be a big part of the latest season. It will also finally explore Smithers’ relationship and love-going-on-obsession with Mr Burns.

When speaking to TV Line, Al had this to say: “In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously Burns doesn’t. We deal with that in two episodes. We actually do a lot with Smithers this year; he gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options.”

A lot of big changes are happening this season, including the break-up of Homer and Marge, and it seems more than appropriate to include Smithers’ coming out party, as well.
