Incorrect: Larry Linville was offered a two year contract extension at the end of his 5 years, but he declined; it had nothing to do with the producers taking the series in another direction would not suit the Burns character.
True. Linville and Stevenson left to take roles in their own shows.
Yes, the producers knew they had a good thing going with Linville's Burns character, and wanted to hold on to him as long as possible.
