The Simpsons Is Going Game Of Thrones And Killing Off A Character! Read All About The Future Yellow Wedding HERE!
Although we don’t expect Homer Simpson to ask, “where…are…my…donuts?” anytime during this episode, The Simpsons is totally invoking Game of Thrones, and will be killing off a character in the fall’s Season 26 premiere.
Hey, Valar Morghulis, right?
This news is confirmed by executive producers Al Jean and Matt Selman.
Al had this to say on the the episode entitled The Yellow Wedding, which he says will be an even bigger deal than the most recent death on GoT:
├óΓé¼┼ôThe character that dies is portrayed by an actor who won an Emmy for playing that character. People who reported on it then reported we were killing an ├óΓé¼╦£iconic├óΓé¼Γäó character; I├óΓé¼Γäód like to say it├óΓé¼Γäós a great character, but I never used the word ├óΓé¼╦£iconic.├óΓé¼Γäó It├óΓé¼Γäós a terrific character and it [happens in] our premiere this coming year.├óΓé¼┬¥
But don’t worry! The character could come back for a Treehouse of Horror episode, or perhaps a dream sequence, Al implied. What is dead may never die!
Matt had this to add about how they approached the talent about their character’s upcoming demise:
“What we told the performer is, ├óΓé¼╦£This does not mean the end of your participation in The Simpsons.'”
All we need now is Homer becoming Khal of the D’oh-thraki!
