Say Goodbye To One Character From The Simpsons

The Simpsons is set to compete with Game of Thrones Purple Wedding by killing a character on the episode ‘Yellow Wedding’

Death has come across the Simpsons series. Earlier teaser for an upcoming episode has been released which shows a death of a character which 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 Simpsons is set to compete, with Jean joking that the show’s “Yellow Wedding” will be an even bigger deal than the Game of Thrones Purple Wedding.

People who reported on it then reported we were killing an ‘iconic’ character,” he told US website TV Line. “I’d like to say it’s a great character, but I never used the word ‘iconic’.”

Main characters: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie seem likely to stay alive, but this has not been confirmed. Hank Azaria, who has voiced Moe and Comic Book Guy among others, has ruled his characters out of the running. So could it be Sideshow Bob, Grampa or Lou?

It’s a terrific character and it [happens in] our premiere this coming year,” Jean continued. “But just because a character is dying, that doesn’t mean he [or she] won’t pop up in future episode.”

The decision to ‘kill off’ a character follows the show’s decline in ratings. The Simpsons series has lost its popularity over the years and this Sunday the award-winning cartoon series received its lowest viewing figures in, pulling in just 3.4 m viewers.

The director might want spark some interest by a death of a character, which earlier was tested on Family Guy by the death of Brian Griffin.

Whether it is going to bring more audience or not, the series directors are trying their best to find a way to bring back the old name as the best cartoon out there to The Simpsons.
