Background

Executive producer Al Jean told reporters during a recent conference call that the writers are "working on a script where a character will pass away."

"We are doing this story for the same reason we do all others -- we think it has a good emotional through line," Jean told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. "The story will be produced this year though it may air in season 26."

While details are scarce, Jean hinted that "the actor playing the character won an Emmy" for the role, stopping short of revealing which of the beloved (or not so beloved?) animated gang would not survive. Jean told THR that the episode would happen sometime in mid- to late-2014.

Some notable characters voiced by Emmy winners:

• Castellaneta as various characters including:
Homer Simpson, Grampa Simpson, Barney, Krusty, Groundskeeper Willie, Mayor Quimby, Sideshow Mel
• Hank Azaria as various characters including:
Chief Wiggum, Moe, Cletus, Apu, Comic Book Guy

Can this be settled?

Fans of The Simpsons should start preparing themselves for the imminent death of a "terrific character".

Teasers so far suggest the character might not be who people are expecting, but it is known that the actor who plays them won an Emmy for their voiceover.

Al Jean, executive producer of the long-running animated series, has even gone so far as to hint at some Game of Thrones comparisons.

The HBO show shocked viewers with the death of a major character in its "Purple Wedding" episode earlier this month.

But The Simpsons is set to compete, with Jean joking that the show's "Yellow Wedding" will be "an even bigger deal" than the fantasy drama's storyline.

The Simpsons 'Might Kill Off Apu Nahasapeemapetilon', Says Friend Of Co-Creator

Jennifer Tilly says the Kwik-E-Mart boss is rumoured to be the one facing the axe

Fans of The Simpsons have been on edge ever since it was revealed last month that one of the long-running comedy's regular characters will be killed off at some point during the current 25th season.

That means there's one last name on the list: Rabbi Hyman Krustofski.

Krusty the Clown's dad has been at the center of a number of poignant episodes, from his first appearance (in which he finally reunited with his son) to his appearance at Krusty's adult bar mitzvah. He's a likable and recognizable character, but not so essential to the story that his death will shake up the show's ironclad status quo. And he's old enough that his death can be natural, instead of a jarring accident (like Maude Flanders' unfortunate death by T-shirt cannon).
