Exclusive Simpsons Scoop: Get All the Details on Season 24’s Treehouse of Horror!

Black holes, Back to the Future, demonic possession and the end of the world await Simpsons fans in the upcoming season’s “Treehouse of Horror XXIII” episode.

This year’s installment of the annual Halloween-adjacent special will air on Sunday, Oct. 7, executive producer Al Jean tells TVLine exclusively. And it’s shaping up to be scary good.

First up, The Simpsons’ Marty McFly act. “Bart goes back and prevents Marge and Homer from ever getting married, and we see what happens next,” says the showrunner. (For what it’s worth, Jon Lovitz – who voices Marge’s high school paramour Artie Ziff, among other characters – is involved.)

Another segment is “a found-footage parody” – in the vein of Paranormal Activity —  “where something really strange is going on in the Simpson house,” he adds.

Also on tap: “We have a segment where a mini black hole terrorizes Springfield and starts sucking everything in, and it’s to tie into the discovery this summer of the Higgs boson,” he says, referring to the so-called “God particle.” (Attendees at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con were treated to a sneak peek of this part of the ep.)

Finally, Jean adds, “We also deal a little with the Mayan prophecy of the world ending this year.” Makes sense: If there’s anyone who’s likely to bring about the end of days, it’s Homer J. Simpson.

    Lol at them doing a back to the future parody now. Kinda funny though that here is a case where Family Guy did it first and not the other way around.

    Wow, they’re actually going to air the Halloween episode BEFORE Halloween and not a week or two after like they usually do?

  9. In actuality, this can be a most unrewarding
    way to fulfill your desires that you can always download The Simpsons episodes safely and without exceeding
    your budget. The rise of home computers led to a collection of
    games for that PC & Mac. Finally, the dhad, dafli, dholki, and damru are instruments
    that produce more drum beats, but much less bass than
    the dhol drum.
