‘Simpsons’ character to come out: Simpsons Character Gay
Published: September 29, 2015
‘Simpsons’ character to come out: Simpsons Character Gay, Springfield’s most loyal personal assistant, Waylon Smithers, may finally be ready to open up to the love of his life.
Waylon Smithers has been in love with his billionaire boss Montgomery C. Burns since the first season of the popular cartoon The Simpsons.
Most of the show’s other characters know the character’s sexual orientation but the hard-working assistant has not yet told the object of his affections about his feelings for him.
The beloved comedy’s creators have hinted viewers of the upcoming Season 27 may finally see him open up.
“In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously Burns doesn’t,” Al Jean, the show’s executive producer, told TVLine.
“We deal with that in two episodes.”
Jean did not go so far as to confirm whether Smithers will actually come out to Mr Burns, but did say the showrunners will be exploring his character further in the coming episodes.
“We actually do a lot with Smithers this year,” Jean said.
“He gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options.”
In another shock reveal, Jean said convenience store owner Apu will see his beloved Kwik-E-Mart fall into the hands of his American-born nephew Jamshed.
“Jamshed is 100 percent American,” Jean said.
“He doesn’t like Apu and even disrespects his way of speaking.”
Season 27 will also see an uncharacteristic story arc for Marge Simpson, who will end up in jail in an episode titled “Orange Is the New Yellow” – a nod to prison drama series Orange Is The New Black.
