A new teacher has been announced for Bart after the former teacher, Mrs. Krabappel, was retired after the death of Marcia Wallace.
The voice actress name is Sofia Vergara, which will cover the role of Mrs. Berrera. Bart will grow feelings for her after he starts drinking a milk substitute filled with bad hormones and starts experiencing early puberty and grows mustache.
Executive producer Al Jean says “She’s more forgiving than Mrs. Krabappel was of Bart. She pays special attention to him.”
Seymour Skinner also has an interest in her. Al Jean notes “We thought it’d be interesting if both Bart and Skinner have a crush on the same woman. She feels Skinner is a wounded soul that she wants to take care of. She is a vet like Skinner, and that’s his attraction.”
Jean also adds that it’s possible she can return in future episodes. “We have a situation where Bart doesn’t have a regular teacher,” referencing Mrs. Krabappel’s death, “so she may or may not come back. [Sofia] was really funny and we were glad to have her, and as she said, ‘I’m just 100 yards away on the Fox lot.’”
The episode she’ll appear in, titled “Teenage Mutant Milk-fed Hurdles” will air in the middle of season 27.
Vergara also voiced characters in two other Fox animated series: Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.
