A key voice of "The Simpsons" will return to the cartoon after holding out for a new contract.  Harry Shearer, who voices notable characters like Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders, has signed a new deal that will keep him on the show through seasons 27 and 28. 

Shearer's contract dispute went public earlier this year, with him even declaring that he was leaving the show after its 26th season.  With Shearer coming back, the show has inked deals with the voices behind all its major characters.  "The Simpsons" returns to Fox for the start of its 27th season this fall.
