‘The Simpsons’ Season 25 & 26 Scoop: Death is Coming to Springfield

Time is running out for one of the denizens of Springfield.

The Simpsons‘ executive producer Al Green recently revealed in a conference call that the writers are currently working on script where a character voiced by an Emmy Award winning voice actor will pass away. Jean told The Hollywood Reporter that the episode will air either in the current season 25 or in season 26, but it will definitely premiere sometime in 2014.

As it stands the death watch list includes such beloved characters as Grampa Simpson, Apu, Krusty, Groundskeeper Willy, Moe and–gulp–Homer (yeah, Homer’s not going to die). Which character do you think is a goner? Share your guesses in the comments below.

The Simpsons season 25 is currently airing Sundays at 8PM ET/PT on Fox.
