"The Simpsons" season 27 episode 1 titled 'Every Man's Dream' is all set to showcase some major changes in the long-running series, said Al Jean, executive producer of the show.
We had reported earlier that in an interview with Variety, Jean had said that Homer will fall in love with his pharmacist who will be voiced by Lena Dunham.
Jean also said that Homer and Marge will be "legally separated" in season 27. However, he didn't mention whether this separation will be just for an episode or for the whole season. He revealed the reason behind separation is Homer's diagnosis with narcolepsy.

Jean also hinted at other events that may happen in season 27. "In another episode, Spider Pig makes his return. Sideshow Bob appears in a segment, and we finally see him do something he's wanted to do for 25 years. And we have an episode based on the film 'Boyhood.' It's a flashback/flash forward about Bart. We go to various points in his life and his life to come which I think came out really well," Jean said.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly about the death of Bart Simpson, he said that Sideshow Bob, Bart's long-time foe, may finally get his hands on Bart. "I'm one of those people that always wanted the Coyote to eat the Road Runner," he told EW.
Marge Simpson may end up in jail. Jean said that Marge lets Bart go to the park alone because he is too irritating and eventually she ends up getting arrested.
Explaining how he got this idea, Jean said, "I read a column by Mitch Albom, the writer of 'Tuesdays with Morrie,' about a mother who was arrested for letting her son play in the park while she had to work. Albom was saying, 'When did it become illegal to let your kids play in the park when they are 10? When did kids have to be on a leash every minute?' So that's the basis of our story."
Undoubtedly, the upcoming season of "The Simpsons" will be full of unexpected twists and hopefully, will carry on the legacy of the show that has been airing for 26 years.
