LOS ANGELES (WRIC) – D’oh! After decades of cartooned togetherness — Homer and Marge Simpson are separating, due in part to Homer’s narcolepsy.

The show’s executive producer says Homer will have a new love interest voiced by Lena Dunham in the new season.

In addition, “The Simpsons” are proving that going into 27 seasons, no beloved character is irreplaceable…or are they?

Over the weekend, the show’s producers revealed that the character Bart Simpson will be killed in this year’s Halloween episode.

Sideshow Bob voiced by Kelsey Grammar will appear as Bart’s murderer and longtime nemesis.

But before you go online to create your petition, it doesn’t seem like he will be gone for long.

When asked if Bart will be back, executive producer Al Jean tweeted, “yes absolutely, we’re not nuts.”

The longest running show in television is back for its 27 season this September.
