With the new season of the American television series ‘The Simpsons’ they are taking a completely different approach. The first episode will be a musical episode in which there is almost only singing. That’s what executive producer of the series, Matt Selman, tells the American magazine Variety.
“It will be like a Broadway musical with all original songs,” Selman says of the first episode called The Star of Backstage. The musical edition also features a guest role for Frozen actress Kristen Bell, who will be the singing voice of the character Marge Simpson.
It is already the 33rd season of The Simpsons. In addition to being the longest-running American animated series, it is also the longest-running American TV series.
The new season will premiere on September 26.
