“The Simpsons” may be going strong in its 25th season, but a major character from the long-running animated series will soon meet his or her maker.

In a conference call with reporters last week, executive producer Al Jean revealed plans to kill off a character in the season ahead.

“We’re actually working on a script where a character will pass away,” Jean said. “I’ll give a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won’t say who it is.”

“Simpsons” fanatics will know that this hint doesn’t exactly narrow things down: Nearly every member of the core ensemble of voice-over performers has won an Emmy, including Dan Castellaneta (Homer, Barney, Krusty), Julie Kavner (Marge, Patty, Selma), Hank Azaria (Apu, practically everyone else on the show), Nancy Cartwright (Bart) and Yeardley Smith (Lisa).
