THE SIMPSONS Producer Names Upcoming Death The 'Yellow Wedding'

Long serving Simpsons producer Al Jean has compared the 26th season opener to Game of Thrones iconic Red and Purple Weddings, saying that it will 'be an even bigger deal' than on the HBO show. Mild GoT spoilers if you're not yet up to speed.

It was announced last year that the premiere episode of The Simpsons 26th season would feature the death of a well-known character.

In an interview with TV Line, Producer Al jean has shed some light on the upcoming death: "People who reported on it then reported we were killing an 'iconic' character; I'd like to say it's a great character, but I never used the word 'iconic'"

Continuing: "It's a terrific character and it [happens in] our premiere this coming year. But just because a character is dying, that doesn't mean he (or she) won't pop up in a future episode."

Comparing the death to Game of Thrones, Jean said: 'This is going to be a bigger deal than King Joffrey on Game of Thrones - the Yellow Wedding!'

The character that dies is portrayed by an actor who won an Emmy for playing that character.

Hank Azaria reassured fans that his characters are safe: "I honestly didn't know who it was going to be. And now I do know... I can say that it's not one of mine."

Sideshow Bob, Barney Gumble and Abe Simpson are all tipped as the character in question.
