Death clues[edit]

(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 later served as the season 26 premiere. As Al Jean said,[2] it won't be Edna Krabappel, due to Marcia Wallace's death[3] and Hank Azaria confirmed that it wasn't one of his characters.[4] However, Homer isn't the one who dies. It is just a resident of Springfield.
