The list of deceased Simpsons characters is surprisingly long. There’s Frank Grimes, Maude Flanders, Bleeding Gums Murphy, and Mona Simpson, of course, but don’t forget about Aunt Gladys and Shary Bobbins and Mr. Pinchy. Plus, all those many, many Ralphs. Those were all devastating deaths, but they’re nothing compared to the “Yellow Wedding” that’s going to happen in the season 26 premiere.
Simpsons showrunner Al Jean was coy about the character death taking place during the Sept. 28 premiere. Then he was a little more transparent. “It turned out bigger than we thought it was going to be,” he said. “It’s not going to be this blood bath where they all get murdered.” When pushed about who it might be, he repeated that the voice actor has won an Emmy for the role and that his clues have been “obvious.” “It’s called ‘A Clown in the Dumps,’” Jean said to gasps.
