The fol­low­ing ar­ti­cle has some very ma­jor spoil­ers!

D’Oh! Homer and Marge are to sep­a­rate af­ter more than 25 years to­gether on hit com­edy “The Simp­sons,” its ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer re­vealed.

In a link on the show’s Twit­ter feed Wed­nes­day, Al Jean said it will emerge at the start of the show’s 27th sea­son in Septem­ber that their re­la­tion­ship has been strained for some time.

“In the pre­miere, it’s dis­cov­ered af­ter all the years Homer has nar­colepsy (a sleep dis­or­der) and it’s an in­cred­i­ble strain on the mar­riage,” he told in­dus­try jour­nal Va­ri­ety.

“Homer and Marge legally sep­a­rate, and Homer falls in love with his phar­ma­cist, who’s voiced by (“Girls” cre­ator and star) Lena Dun­ham,” he added in the com­ments, pub­lished ear­lier this week but not widely picked up on.

At the week­end En­ter­tain­ment Weekly re­ported that Homer and Marge’s adventure-prone son Bart will be killed dur­ing the next sea­son, which pre­mieres on Sept. 27.

Sideshow Bob — Krusty the Clown’s evil for­mer side­kick — will fi­nally ful­fill his long-held dream of dis­patch­ing Bart, it said.

“I (hate) frus­tra­tion com­edy so we’ll scratch that itch,” Jean told EW.

But fear not: the ex­e­cu­tion will take place in the an­nual Hal­loween episode — which by Simp­sons tra­di­tion doesn’t fit into the usual for­mat of the show, mean­ing Bart can sub­se­quently be re­vived.
