Doh! Television icon “The Simpsons” is about to lose a regular character.

According to The Sun News, executive producer Al Jean will once again kill off a familiar face on the show, echoing the death of Maude Flanders 14 years ago.

Based on an interview with Jean to promote Sunday’s debut of the 25th season of the show, it would seem that the guessing game has only begun as to who will get buried.

“I’ll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won’t say who it is,” Jean said in the inteview. Unfortunately, a bunch of characters have been rewarded with an Emmy over the years.

Other highlights from the new season will include a “Simpsons”/”Futurama” cross-over on the season finale; a wedding for Comic Book Guy (performed by Stan Lee!); and celebrity voices that include Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Elisabeth Moss.
