A few days later - before the American Idol finale (which Aerosmith may or may not be playing) - Kramer returns to The Simpsons for the Season 22 finale.

The episode, entitled “The Ned-Liest Catch,” will air on May 22nd at 8 PM (ET).

Here’s the storyline:

“Feeling guilty for getting Mrs. Krabappel suspended after one of his school pranks, Bart helps her escape detention, and Ned Flanders winds up saving her life in the process. When Edna and Ned start dating, he is surprised to learn she’s been with many of Springfield’s men, including Homer and Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer (guest-voicing as himself).”
