Homer & Marge Simpson To Split In Upcoming Season

The Simpsons

Following news that Bart Simpson will finally meet his demise at the hands of Sideshow Bob, more news from the upcoming season of The Simpsons has surfaced.

Apparently, we'll see Homer and Marge Simpson split up.

According to executive producer Al Jean, the season's premiere will feature the discovery that Homer has been suffering from narcolepsy all these years. From there, it sends the longtime couple's marriage into a downward spiral, and eventually, causing them to split.

Also, Homer will go on to move in with another woman -- his pharmacist, voiced by Girls creator Lena Dunham.

The season premiere of The Simpsons airs on Fox on Sept. 27.

    What horrible ideas. You know a writer has run out of ideas, when they resort to killing off characters.

    They're already denying that it happens. Probably just a one-off episode...
