By now, it’s clear that The Simpsons is going to be back, with a new series coming to Netflix in the near future.
The new show will have a very different look than the first one, which featured the original cast and some of the same creators.
But what about the characters?
Will they be returning, and are they returning for good?
Netflix has already released a teaser trailer for the new series, which shows a young Maggie Simpson, played by Amy Poehler, at work with a camera crew in the background.
