For a cartoon sitcom, there sure seems to be a lot of drama surrounding The Simpsons lately. In an upcoming episode of the show, Marge and Homer will be getting legally separated.
Of course, when the citizens of the internet got wind of this, they handled in typical fashion… by totally. freaking. out.
So in the next series of the simpsons, Marge and Homer get a divorce and Bart is murdered along with my childhood

It turns out that Sideshow Bob will finally get his chance to kill Bart if only temporarily, during this year’s Halloween episode. Honestly, at this point I can’t tell if producers are desperately trying to draw viewers back in to the show…
… or they’re trying to get us to leave on our own. Only time will tell if upcoming events and the change of cast end up reviving the show.
