The Simpsons are back for their 28th season on ELEVEN later this month.
Encouragingly, it will air at 8.30pm Wednesday, 28 September, just 2 days after the US.
At 9pm it will be followed by the premiere of Son of Zorn, a new live action / animated comedy that is part of the Fall season. This premiered earlier this week in the US.
“Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus”
When Springfield is burned to the ground, the Simpsons beg Mr. Burns to fund its rebuilding. Burns agrees, with one condition: he gets to put on a variety show at the Springfield Bowl.
Comedian Amy Schumer guest stars as Mrs. Burns in this flashback episode depicting Mr. Burns’ childhood.
Son of Zorn
“Return to Orange County”
Fully animated Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is a fearless warrior and defender of Zephyria, a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean, where everything and everyone is animated.
After 10 years in Zephyria, Zorn travels to California to visit his son Alangulon (aka Alan), where he learns that his ex-wife Edie (Cheryl Hines) has a fiancé and new upper-middle-class life.
Determined to reconnect with his son and win his ex-wife back, Zorn stays and obtains a job. Despite his “unique” qualities, he is welcomed by his new boss. Zorn does his best to exchange the challenges of battling dark herdsmen and bloodthirsty arachnobots for those of fatherhood and office life.
