The very first episode of the 28th Season of The Simpsons premieres tonight at 8/7c on FOX! “Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus” will kickstart the season, with Amy Schumer as Mr. Burns’ mother. Al Jean reports to Voice of TV and Uproxx: “We said a good character for our plot would be that she’s Burns’ mother in the past and kind of the source of this unhappiness that he has that’s haunted him to the present. She recorded it over the phone, and she was very funny. It’s not a huge part, but that was because we didn’t have the actress until a little late in the process that we knew who was going to be in all three shows.” There will also be a reference to The Blues Brothers.
