“The Simpsons” to Kill Off a Major Character
This season, the show’s 25th, “The Simpsons” is killing off a major character. The show’s executive producer Al Jean gave a vague hint: The actor playing the character has won an Emmy – but nearly everyone on the cast has an Emmy.
The last character to die on “The Simpsons” was Maude Flanders, who was killed by a t-shirt shot from a t-shirt cannon at the Springfield Raceway in the episode “Alone Again, Natura-Diddily” on February 13, 2000.
“The Simpsons” started its 25th season on Sunday, September 29, 2013.
