Watch Smithers meet his new boyfriend on The Simpsons

scandal 16/11/2021

One of our favourite Simpson's characters, Waylon Smithers, is finally about to find love!

It's been 5 years since Smither's emotional 'coming out' episode was released, but to this date, he's yet to find a long-lasting love. 

In the special forthcoming episode, Smithers meets a famous billionaire fashion designer named Michael De Graaf (voiced by Victor Garber). From there, the two fall in love while travelling the globe together.

A synopsis for the episode, titled ‘Portrait Of A Lackey On Fire’, tells us:

Smithers finds true love with a famous fashion designer, but will his new relationship destroy Springfield?

The episode, which comes out later this month, was written by longtime series writer Rob LaZebnik and his gay son, Johnny. Johnny actually inspired his Dad to write Smithers coming out episode back in 2016! How cool that the two have now created this upcoming episode together.

We know it's just a cartoon, but we're so happy to see Smithers finally find a special someone, and hopefully this means he'll stop crushing on blimmin' Mr Burns!

Check out the moment the two meet for the very first time up top.
