Fox’s “The Simpsons,” which launches its 28th season on Sept. 25, will do something this season it has never done in the past 27: a one-hour episode.

The episode, “The Great Phatsby,” will air in January and will feature guest stars Taraji P. Henson and Keegan-Michael Key, Deadline.com reports.

The episode “follows Mr. Burns (Harry Shearer) as he tries to relive his glory days and crosses paths with a mysterious music mogul,” Deadline notes. “After being conned by him and reduced to bankruptcy, Mr. Burns seeks revenge on the producer with the help of Homer, Bart, rapper Jazzy James (Key) and the mogul’s ex-wife, Praline (Henson).”
