Celebrity guests are a big part of FOX’s animated programming block, and there’s a long list of special guests on the schedule this year. “The Simpsons,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Family Guy,” and the new series “Bless the Harts” will all have popular guest stars when the shows return this fall. The network teased the guest stars in an announcement this week, reminding viewers that the shows return in just a few weeks. FOX’s Animation Domination begins on September 29th this year, starting with “The Simpsons,” followed by “Bless the Harts,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and “Family Guy.”
The 31st season of “The Simpsons” will welcome singer, songwriter, record producer and pianist John Legend, his wife, supermodel and author Chrissy Teigen (“Lip Sync Battle”), and Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley”). Additional guest voices this season include Fortune Feimster (“Life in Pieces”), Asia Kate Dillon (“John Wick 3,” “Billions”), Jim Parsons (“Big Bang Theory”), Scott Bakula (“NCIS: New Orleans”) and directors Joseph and Anthony Russo (“Avengers: Endgame”). As previously announced, John Mulaney (“Saturday Night Live”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Jason Momoa (“Aquaman”) and primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall also are heard this season.
“Bless the Harts” stars Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, and Ike Barinholtz, and the story follows a Southern family that is always broke, and forever struggling to make ends meet. The recurring guest cast includes Fortune Feimster, Holly Hunter (“Here and Now”) Mary Steenburgen (“The Last Man on Earth”) and Drew Tarver (“The Other Two”). The new series follows “The Simpsons” on the schedule.
