We knew that 'The Simpsons'' current season would pack a wallop with its existing crop of guest stars, as well as an upcoming installment produced from a decade-old Judd Apatow script, but this is getting ridiculous. Newly added to the season are Apatow himself, along with frequent collaborators Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and even Channing Tatum, while 'Parks and Recreation' star Nick Offerman will appear later on!

'The Simpsons' to Kill Off Another Recurring Character for Good?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick October 1, 2013 @ 9:24 AM
We've heard quite a bit about 'The Simpsons'' twenty-fifth season, from its rich vein of celebrity guest stars, to the 'Homeland' parody that gripped this past Sunday's premiere, but is the spectre of death once again lurking about Springfield? Like Maude Flanders before, it seems one long-running 'Simpsons' character has been targeted for a permanent exit for the aging animation staple.

Though we got to see the sequence in full at Comic-Con 2013, Guillermo del Toro's contribution to 'The Simpsons'' upcoming Halloween special, "Treehouse of Horror XXIV," might make the episode the scariest yet.

The long-running FOX animation staple's season 25 premiere on September 29 will see 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig guest as an FBI agent suspiciously similar to 'Homeland''s Carrie Matheson, the first clip of which hits the manic nail right on the head.

Twenty-five seasons on the air, we'd imagine 'The Simpsons' to have covered just about everything under and shielded from the sun, but it seems our favorite Springfield family has at least one new animation style to boldly go: LEGO! Along with the recent announcement of 'Simpsons'-themed LEGO products, it seems the series itself will get the brick and block treatment in 2014!

It remains to be seen if Amy Poehler will reprise her role opposite Tina Fey as co-host of the 2014 Golden Globes, but we at least know one other gig the 'Parks and Recreation' star will return to in the near future. 'The Simpsons' upcoming 25th season has tapped Amy Poehler to return to her futuristic role as Bart's wife, but who might the character have her eyes on this time around?
