The Simpsons Will Kill Off a Major Character


Killing off characters is not exactly unplowed ground for "The Simpsons." Maude Flanders was offed in 2000 and the "Dallas" parody Who Shot Mr. Burns? is a TV classic. But now, one of the producers of "The Simpsons" say another long-time resident of Springfield is about to take the eternal dirt nap.

Executive producer Al Jean told Crave's /Film:

I’ll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won’t say who it is.

That narrows the list of possible characters to: Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Ms. Krabappel, Apu, Sideshow Bob, Moe, Grandpa, Barney, Krusty, Carl, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy and Duffman.

This is The Simpsons 25th year on television and they are celebrating with lots of crossovers, including an episode with the characters from Family Guy.
