This report is coming seven weeks after the actor tweeted his exit from show.

“From James L. Brooks’ lawyer: ‘show will go on, Harry will not be part of it, wish him the best.’ This because I wanted what we’ve always had: the freedom to do other work. Of course, I wish him the very best.” - he had tweeted.

FOX has however confirmed that Shearer will be a major part of the upcoming 27th season through the 30th, as he has now signed the same contract as other five members of the core voice cast.
