We may soon be saying "goodbye" to Krusty.

"The Simpsons" are headed to their 26th season and executive producer Al Jean has said they are going to kill off a character in the season opener. "It turned out bigger than we thought it was going to be. It's not going to be this blood bath where they all get murdered," Jean said.

On September 28th, the next season will kick off with an episode titled "Clown In The Dumps." This is a strong indicator that it will be Krusty; however, it could also be Krusty's father, Rabbi Krustofski.
