Voice actor Harry Shearer, who provides the voices of Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, and Reverend Lovejoy among others, will be returning to The Simpsons after all. It was announced in May 2015 that Shearer would be leaving the show over a dispute with show producers over what he called, “the freedom to do other work.”

Showrunner Al Jean said in a series of tweets that Shearer and the producers were able to “clear up a misunderstanding,” and that he was glad Shearer is returning.
