The Simpsons Producers Plot to Kill Off One Iconic Character: Who Could it Be?

The Simpsons FOX

Brace yourselves, loyal Simpsons fans! One of your favorite characters could soon be exiting Springfield—for good.

According to The Sun News, executive producer Al Jean is planning to kill off one star in the new season.

"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," Jean shared in a conference call about the show's 25th season.

With more than 25 Primetime Emmy Awards under the show's belt, that hint isn't the most helpful.

But with some research, we found out Princess Penelope (Anne Hathaway), Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer) and Marge's mom Jacqueline (Julie Kavner) are just some of the award-winning characters that could be on the chopping block.

Unfortunately, the cast and crew are not dropping any more hints…for now.

As the waiting game begins, fans of Homer, Marge and the entire gang are celebrating the animated show's creative season premiere.

Never one to fall behind on pop culture, the series treated fans to a hilarious parody of Homeland on Sunday's episode. With a little help from special guest Kristen Wiig, the Simpsons gang proved once again why they have been on for more than two decades.

Simpsons fans, who do you think will leave Springfield this season? Sound off in our comments section below!
