simpsonPossibly to help spice things up after 25 seasons on the air, The Simpsons is going to kill off a regular character this season, Yahoo! TV is reporting. “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,” executive producer Al Jean said. The Simpsons, of course, killed off a major character before when Ned Flanders’ wife Maude died, but that was more than a decade ago. Supposedly, Family Guy is also offing someone this season, although it’s possible that was just a joke.
