Tags: The Simpsons

It's been a year in the making, and now The Simpsons have revealed which main character has been killed off.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers.

There was lots of speculation surrounding who would die at the beginning of the 26th season, and now we can finally reveal who it is.

In the episode titled "Clown In The Dumps", show favourite Krusty The Clown retired from his job after being offended by a comedy channel roast of him.

But it's not Krusty that dies in the episode.

It's his father, Rabbi Krustofsky.

He dies as he is about to tell Krusty what he thinks of his comedic achievements.

Executive Producer of The Simpsons, Al Jean, had earlier said that it wasn't an 'iconic character', but a "great character and major one".

Would you call Rabbi Krustofsky a major character?  We were bracing for the worst!


In the words of Homer... D'OH!
