LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- A main character is to be killed off on "The Simpsons" during its current 25th season, said Al Jean, the U.S. animated sitcom's executive producer.

"We're actually working on a script where a character will pass away," Jean told reporters in a conference call last week. "I'll give a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is."

The Los Angeles Times said the hint doesn't give too much away since nearly every member of the core ensemble of voice-over performers has won an Emmy at some point during the course of the show.
