Los Angeles: British business magnate Richard Branson will appear in the upcoming season of hit American animated series `The Simpsons`.

The Virgin Group founder has recorded a cameo for the series and will play a neighbour to Mr Burns, reported Entertainment Weekly.

"Richard Branson is the Flanders to Mr Burns. He`s Mr Burns`s nosy neighbour," executive producer Al Jean said.

Branson previously made an appearance as himself in season 22`s `Loan-a Lisa`, which also starred Facebook`s Mark Zuckerberg.

`Parks and Recreation` stars Nick Offerman, Sarah Silverman, `Frasier` star David Hyde Pierce, Willem Dafoe and Jane Fonda will also lend their voice talents to the show this season.

The season 26 premiere episode of `The Simpsons` will see a major character killed off, with teasers suggesting that Homer Simpson could die.

`The Simpsons` will return on September 28, 2014.
