A plot development that is likely to break the hearts of fans of “The Simpsons” is coming this season to the long-running Fox animated hit.
USA Today reports that Homer and Marge will be separating. Executive producer Al Jean reportedly revealed the plot twist in an interview with Variety.
Lena Dunham is getting the blame for breaking up one of TV’s longest-married couples in history, with Homer and Marge lasting 27 seasons so far.
Dunham, the creator and star of “Girls,” will play a homewrecker in the upcoming “Simpsons” season premiere, in which the marriage will also be facing other strains.
