The Simpsons is about to begin its 26th season and executive producer Al Jean announced that a major character from the show will be killed off.
Fans have been going nuts trying to figure out who’s getting the ax and it looks like Krusty the Clown won’t be clowning around anymore. The first episode of the new season is called ‘Clown in the Dumps,’ strongly suggesting that Krusty is as good as gone.
Jean has not confirmed or denied these rumors, stating, “I didn’t say I was killing Krusty … I didn’t say I wasn’t.” Other major characters that could get killed off include Krusty’s dad Rabbi Hyman Krustofski, Sideshow Bob, Bart, Marge and a few others.
Krusty is voiced by Dan Castellaneta who’s won four Emmys for his role in The Simpsons.
Season 26 will premiere Sunday, September 28 on Fox.
