The Simpsons to Kill Off Long-Time Character: Who Will It Be?

by at . Comments

Death is coming to The Simpsons.

No, not the character of Death, who's been known to pop up now and then. The actual Grim Reaper, the guy responsible for taking Maud Flanders and Frank Grimes away from us in years past.

Speaking to Canada's Sun News, producer Al Jean teased that a character will meet his or her Maker on Season 25, offering up just one hint regarding the individual's identity:

“The actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won’t say who it is."

That actually does narrow it down a bit.

If we take away Dan Castellaneta and Hank Azaria because they voice multiple characters - along with Anne Hathaway, because Princess Penelope doesn't seem worthy of this sort of hype, and any of the immediate family members - we're left with the following possibilities.

How can they kill off the most brilliant character of the series?!! Sideshow Bob will live forever! If they kill him I will kill myself!! Let's hope that will not happen.

The Simpsons Quotes

Officer Eddie: (reading Steve Sax's license) Well well, Steve Sax, from New York City.
Officer Lou: I heard some guy got killed in New York City and they never solved the case. But you wouldn't know anything about that now, would you, Steve?
(Lou and Eddie laugh)
Steve Sax: But there are hundreds of unsolved murders in New York City.
Officer Lou: You don't know when to keep your mouth shut, do you, Saxxy Boy?

Wow, now I see why they call you Miss Hoover. You must have been vacuuming for an hour.
