(Newser) – Sideshow Bob will finally get his revenge in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. After 25 years of foiled murder plots, the character voiced by Kelsey Grammer will kill Bart Simpson in the show's annual Halloween episode, producers revealed at Texas' ATX Festival over the weekend. It isn't clear how Bart will die, but he will, of course, return as if nothing happened in subsequent episodes, Entertainment Weekly reports. Also appearing in the upcoming season: Homer's Spider-Pig from The Simpsons Movie. (The voice of dozens of Simpsons characters will be absent.)
