It took Sideshow Bob nearly three decades to accomplish but finally, he will get his chance to exact his revenge on Bart Simpson — and ultimately put an end to often trouble-making 10-year-old.

Simpsons producers announced Saturday during the show’s ATX Festival panel in Austin, Texas that Sideshow Bob — the former on-screen companion to Krusty the Clown voiced by Kelsey Grammar — will kill Bart Simpson off during this year’s Treehouse of Horror Halloween special, an annual tradition of the long-running animated sitcom.

“You’re going to see Sideshow Bob do something he’s wanted to do for a long time,” show producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly Radio. “I hated frustration comedy so we’ll scratch that itch.”

The love-hate relationship between Bob and Bart began in season one of the series, which started in 1989, when the eldest Simpson child unraveled Bob’s plan to frame Krusty the Clown for armed robbery. Since then, the fallen thespian Bob has tried and failed to kill Bart for meddling in his plans for nearly 26 seasons, starting with the “Cape Feare” episode in 1993. This doesn’t mean Bart is gone for good — the special takes place outside of the show’s normal continuity, so it gives writers the ability to experiment with “what if” scenarios like this one.

“I’m one of those people who always wanted the Coyote to eat the Road Runner,” Jean said. “So you can see where this is going.”

Season 27 of the Simpsons will air starting this fall on Fox.
