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

at .

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.

The Simpsons Quotes

Son, a woman is a lot like a... a refrigerator! They're about six feet tall, 300 pounds. They make ice, and um Oh, wait a minute! Actually, a woman is more like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you'd step over your own mother just to get one! But you can't stop at one, you wanna drink another woman!

Homer

You know, you remind me of a poem I can't remember, and a song that may never have existed, and a place I'm not sure I've ever been to.
