So hold onto your hats – Sideshow Bob will be murdering Bart Simpson!!!!!! WHAT??! Can it be true? The show’s producer, Al Jean, has confirmed to the Entertainment Weekly that it is in fact true:

You’re going to see Sideshow Bob do something he’s wanted to do for a long time.

Sideshow Bob made his debut in 1990 and has been plotting to kill Bart Simpson since 1993 in an episode called “Cape Feare“. Jean explains that the decision was made because he was always frustrated when a show didn’t have closure and he “always wanted to see the coyote catch the road-runner” in the classic Looney Tunes series.

But Bart Simpson will obviously not be killed off forever because he is one of the main (and most popular) characters on the show. Bart will be killed as part of The Simpsons’ annual Halloween special (The Treehouse of Horrors) and will be back when the show returns to normal programming.
