‘The Simpsons’ gets landmark gay romance episode


?The Simpsons? gets landmark gay romance episode

Waylon Smithers will find love with a new boyfriend in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons, which will explore a gay relationship on the show for the first time.


Even though casual Simpsons viewers knew that Smithers is gay and had been harbouring a crush on his boss since the show first debuted, it wasn’t until the 2016 episode “The Burns Cage” that Smithers officially came out publicly to Mr Burns and admitted his true feelings.


Five years after his love was rejected by Mr Burns, Smithers has seemingly moved on and is taking the next step in living his best life publicly – finding love. The buttoned-up sidekick will hook up with a new boyfriend, billionaire fashion mogul Michael De Graaf (voiced by Victor Garber) in a 21 November episode of the show.


The historic moment isn’t just big for the show, it is also a landmark moment for longtime series writer Rob LaZebnik and his gay son Johnny, who inspired Smithers’ coming out episode in 2016.
