The Simpsons are bringing back a beloved character for their 600th episode

Old school fans will love this.

In what could be the greatest news to emerge from Springfield since the glorious decision to re-open the Sex Cauldron, the show is bringing back a beloved character for their upcoming 600th episode.

Executive producer Al Jean was accompanied by show creator Matt Groening (pictured below) to announce the list of guest stars that will be providing their voices during the 28th season and we're pleased to announce that they're bringing back Homer's sworn enemy.

October 16th will see the 600th episode of The Simpsons being aired and to mark this occasion, we're going to be treated to Treehouse of Horror XXVII. The first segment will be a Hunger Games parody and we've been promised the return of Frank Grimes also.

Yes, that's right! Grimey (he loves being called that) will finally have the chance to exact some revenge on Homer.

We've frequently ranked Grimey as one of our favourite supporting characters from The Simpsons but here's hoping that he manages to avoid those high voltage cables this time around.
