Back in October, the Simpsons creators announced they would be killing off one of the show’s beloved characters in the upcoming 25th season of the long-running animation.
Taking into account the sheer number of residents found in Springfield, guessing who might be the one to bite the bullet would have been a fool’s errand, that was, until executive producer Al Jean teased the death in an interview with The Sun.
“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 might narrow things down a little bit, but it still doesn’t tell us much, particularly when you remember nearly all of the Simpson’s voice cast, such as Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, Hank Azaria and Yeardley Smith have taken home Emmy’s in the past.
What it does tell us however is that the lives of Homer, Grampa, Krusty, Barney, and many other popular characters are in serious jeopardy.
Already, a series of bookmakers have started placing odds on who might snuff it in season 25, while fans everywhere are scratching their heads trying to guess who the unlucky Springfieldian could be.
And, with one of Springfield’s most famous of denizens set to shuffle off the proverbial mortal coil, we take a look at 5 Characters We Want To See Killed Off.
