Simpsons regular to be killed off

But producers won't say who

A regular Simpsons character is to be killed off in the new series, producers have revealed.

Executive producer Al Jean broke the news at a press conference promoting the 25th season, which started on Sunday.

He said: ‘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.’

This is not much of a clue as Simpsons actors have won a total of 25 Emmys over the years, and they play multiple characters.

The death will be the first major character written out of the show since Maud Flanders fell to her death from the grandstand at the Springfield Springway – when Homer ducked out of the way of a barrage of T-shirts being fired from a cannon.
