The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean promised fans an emotional story back in October; however, he didn't reveal too much. At that point, not even the actor knew his character was going to die soon. Even so, Jean dropped two hints: the actor who voiced this character claimed an Emmy for his/her performance in the role and the character has appeared in more than two episodes. The episode is slated for the season premiere on Sept 28.
Fans of The Simpsons will get an emotional pick-me-up come Nov 9 when the Futurama/Simpsons crossover is scheduled to air. Cast members from the cancelled 31st-century will get the chance to reprise their roles. Actors include Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Phil LaMarr, Lauren Tom, Maurice LaMarche, and Tress MacNeille. In this episode, Bender travels back in time to kill Bart because his actions in the present carry heavy repercussions for the future.
