What Horrors Await You in This Year's Simpsons Treehouse of Horror?One Halloween tradition we look more than forward to every year is seeing what hilarious horrors are cooked up for “The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror”! Read on for all of the details of what will be going bump in the night in Springfield.

This year’s installment of the annual Halloween-adjacent special will air on Sunday, October 7, executive producer Al Jean tells TVLine.

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.)

    Simpsons hasnt been funny in 12 years! all there Halloween episodes since 2000 havent been very good when compared to the ones in the 90’s

    While The Simpson as a whole has gotten a bit hit and miss in recent series; the Halloween specials are still strong. Excited as always.

    So after years of the Treehouse of Horror airing in November, Fox finally decided to air it in October – 3 1/2 weeks before Halloween! I guess at least this year we can DVR it and watch it on Halloween. I miss the old days when they actually aired it on the 31st.

    Interesting line up.
