Sorry, “Simpsons” fans — it looks like your favorite family is about to go through some tough times.

, Homer and Marge will be seperating in the upcoming season premiere. In the premiere, it’s discovered after all the years Homer has narcolepsy and it’s an incredible strain on the marriage,” Al Jean told Variety. “Homer and Marge legally separate, and Homer falls in love with his pharmacist, who’s voiced by Lena Dunham. We’ll have cameos from the other women from ‘Girls.’”

That’s right. Lena Dunham is the “Simpsons” home-wrecker.

No clues as to how long this separation will last — we’re rooting for an end-of-episode reunion.

In other Jewish “Simpsons” news, the 27th season will be the first without Harry Shearer, the voice behind Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Waylon Smithers, and more of your favorite characters.
