This was not the only news that executive producer and showrunner Al Jean dropped on viewers. Bart Simpson will be "killed" in a Halloween episode by Sideshow Bob.
The Twitter world was visibly upset.
But Jean clarified the rumors.
Even the The Simpsons account posted this not so subtle tweet.
As you can see he never said, "divorce." The worried world just rushed to conclusions. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. The new season premieres on September 27.
