The episode, “The Hateful Eight-Year Olds,” also welcomes guest stars Joey King (The Act, Fargo), Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and Lili Reinhart, and YouTube star Lilly “Superwoman” Singh.

Episode Info: Lisa makes a new friend who loves horses, but then becomes part of a circle of snooty young rich girls. Meanwhile, Homer takes Marge on a romantic cruise in the all-new “The Hateful Eight-Year-Olds” episode of The Simpsons airing Sunday, May 10 (8-8:30 p.m. ET/PT) on FOX.
Guest Voice Cast: Lili Reinhart as Bella-Ella; Joey King as Addy; Madelaine Petsch as Sloan; Lilly Singh as Kensey; Camila Mendes as Tessa Rose; Weezer as Sailor’s Delight and Themselves
In the episode, Weezer performs as a cover band named Sailor’s Delight, who are the house band on the romantic cruise taken by Homer and Marge. Some of Sailor’s Delight’s songs in the episode are classic hits from Weezer (“The Black Album”) or Pacific Daydream, but one song is completely new: debuting worldwide on The Simpsons, the track is called “Blue Dream,” and will be featured on the band’s forthcoming album, “Van Weezer.”
