Who’s leaving Springfield… Forever?

In the last few days news broke of a death happening in Springfield and as always with news like this, rumours are running wild. The Simpsons’ producer Al Jean has revealed that a main character will be killed off in the latest season. The reveal, which was announced during a conference promoting the 25th season of the show, means that many characters could be in danger. It has been 14 years since a character has died on The Simpsons with the last casualty being Maud Flanders.

Jean gave one clue saying ‘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’. In other shows this would be of great help, however nearly all of the actors of the main characters in The Simpsons have won Emmys for their voice work. Based on this clue the list has been somewhat narrowed down and includes:

Barney Grumble (3/1)
Comic Book Guy (3/1)
Edna Krabappel (4/1)
Sideshow Bob (5/1)
Apu Nahasapeemapetilon (6/1)
Moe Szylak (6/1)
Krusty the Clown (8/1)
Chief Wiggum (12/1)
Carl Carlson (16/1)
Cletus (25/1)

And we musn’t forget the main family themselves:
Grandpa Simpson (with odds of 5/2)
Lisa Simpson (100/1)
Marge Simpson (150/1)
Bart Simpson (150/1)
Homer Simpson (200/1)


Personally I know who my bets are on (Grandpa if you were wondering), but who do you think is being written out of the show? Also, is anyone else shocked that there’s been 25 seasons?!

I'm a movie lover of all genres, particularly comic book films, as well as some television shows such as Community. I enjoy fiction writing and blog writing and I sometimes dabble in reviews.
