The Simpsons to Kill Off Character
Tragedy will soon strike Springfield.
The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean recently announced during a press conference that the show’s writers plan to kill off one of its “regular characters” this season, making for the fictional town’s first high-profile death since Maude Flanders fell to her death at the Springfield Speedway.
Sun News reports that “the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character,” according to Jean — who refused to go into further detail about the planned death.
However, Jean did reveal some juicy tidbits about the upcoming season — including a marriage for Comic Book Guy and a Simpsons_/_Futurama crossover for the show’s season finale.
