LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The longest-running American sitcom is trying something new.

After 27 seasons, "The Simpsons" will air a live segment later this year. Showrunner Al Jean says Homer Simpson will appear live for three minutes to talk about current events and answer fans' questions.

Jean told "The Hollywood Reporter" this will be the first time an animated series has ever broadcasted live.

You can watch the live episode right here on WDRB on Sunday, May 15th.
