Simpsons executive producer Al Jean lets slip after the Simpsons / Futurama cross over episode that aired last night.
“We’ve implied androgyny, we’ve implied that one might be a woman—we never said that both were, but why not? Who knows? We thought it was a great ending to get the [Futurama] aliens, and then we thought it was a good excuse to bring in Kang and Kodos,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean tells EW. “People are asking: is this episode canon? And I go, ‘What really happened—did Homer really fall off a cliff all those times and live?’ But that being said: Yeah, sure, they’re Kang and Kodos Johnson. They’re a gay female couple in their species. They seemed to be married.”
