'The Simpsons' Planning To Kill Character: Major Death Ahead In Season 25

Posted: Updated:

"The Simpsons" is planning to kill a character with a big Season 25 death. Executive producer Al Jean revealed the upcoming death in an interview with The Sun News.

"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 said.

Several of the stars have won Emmys for their work on "The Simpsons," including Dan Castellaneta (Homer, Krusty, Barney and more), Hank Azaria (Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy and more) and guest actors Kelsey Grammer (Sideshow Bob) and Anne Hathaway (Princess Penelope).

Viewers will remember "The Simpsons" famously killed off Maude Flanders, the wife of the Simpsons' neighbor Ned, in the Season 11 episode "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily."

Other "Simpsons" characters who have perished include Dr. Nick Riviera, Bleeding Gums Murphy, Frank Grimes and Dr. Marvin Monroe.

"The Simpsons" airs Sundays, 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
