The Simpsons is set to make a return for season 35. To celebrate its historic 35th season, Fox has released an official extended trailer prior to its Fall release date. The new season is set to premiere as a part of the network’s “AniDom” lineup in early October.
The new trailer features rapid sequences of scenes that include a playful parody of The Beatles’ recording session for “Get Back.” The season also teases the return of Sideshow Bob. The description of the new season’s first episode reads, “Feeling worthless at work, Homer volunteers to be a school crossing guard. But when his safety squad receives too much funding, the crossing guards become a force to be feared in the all-new ‘Homer’s Crossing’ episode of The Simpsons.”
The press release of the extended trailer gives fans a hint at what to expect stating, “This season Marge experiences a series of nightmares about young Bart’s childhood coming to an end; Homer accidentally volunteers for a school crossing guard position; sixty years in the future, Lisa recounts the story of how Homer was scapegoated for a power outage that plunged Springfield into darkness days before Thanksgiving; and the annual chilling trilogy ‘Treehouse of Horror XXXIV’ is back!” James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, Matt Selman and Al Jean continue to serve as executive producers on The Simpsons. Fox renewed the series for season 35 and 36 in January. Originally debuting in 1989, The Simpsons returns for a 35th season on October 1.
