Death clues

Cleanup 3.PNG This article or section needs to be cleaned up to fit in with the Manual of Style.
(To see who died see Character death)

Some clues about the Springfield resident who passed away on the Season Premiere were given by the media:

The character to die would have appeared more than twice in the show and will be voiced by an Emmy Award-winning voice actor who won an Emmy for the role as the character. This will be the season 26 premiere. As Al Jean said,[85] it won't be Edna Krabappel, due to Marcia Wallace's death[86] and Hank Azaria confirmed that it wasn't one of his characters.[87] However, Homer won't be who dies.[63]

Upcoming couch gags

  • Matt Groening pointed out that they have some "surprises" for this season, also stating that "we've got one couch gag so nightmarish it will change your DNA!"[63]
  • There will be a couch gag crossover with the animated series Rick and Morty.[88]
