NEW YORK - A major character from the long-running animated series "The Simpsons" will soon meet his or her demise.
Executive producer Al Jean revealed plans to kill off a character in the season ahead. The episode would air sometime mid- to late-2014.
"We're actually working on a script where a character will pass away," Jean said. "I'll give a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is."
Nearly every member of the core ensemble of voice-over performers has won an Emmy, including Dan Castellaneta (Homer, Barney, Krusty), Julie Kavner (Marge, Patty, Selma), Hank Azaria (Apu and countless other characters), Nancy Cartwright (Bart) and Yeardley Smith (Lisa).
This isn't the first time a major character has died on the show. Maude Flanders, wife of the Simpsons' cheerful next-door neighbor Ned, passed away after falling off a grandstand at the racetrack.
Jean also teased some other highlights in the season ahead, including a "Futurama" crossover episode and a wedding for Comic Book Guy officiated by Stan Lee.
