the-simpsons-s28The twenty-eighth season of Fox’s long-running animated comedy series The Simpsons will receive its UK premiere on Sky1 on Sunday January 8th at 6pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.

In the show’s twenty-eighth season, Mr. Burns introduces a “Hunger Games”-style contest in which Springfield’s children must fight each other; and Lisa’s imaginary best friend becomes jealous of her real best friends. Additional storylines this season include the Simpsons’ hometown of Springfield burning to the ground; Homer getting roped into coaching the kids’ lacrosse team with Milhouse’s dad; and Homer paying Choremonkey Matt Leinart to play catch with Bart, the two of whom form a strong bond, much to Homer’s chagrin.
