The shameless money grabbing megalomaniacs behind The Simpsons are going on another ruthless quest for ratings. Instead of the usual tricks of sending the family to a foreign country, getting in a celebrity to play themselves or collaborating with another crappy show, they've decided to kill off a character.
Sideshow Bob will finally kill Bart. In a Halloween special. Then Bart will resume his role.
Doesn't even seem like that big a deal tbh. Oh Simpsons, how you've cast a spell over me.
Here's producer Al Jean explaining it:
