For the last 30 years, Halloween just wouldn’t feel compete without an episode of The Simpsons’ “Treehouse of Horror” treat (or trick).
And 2020–as strange as it has been–will see the return of the annual spooky TV show. The Simpsons’ “Treehouse of Horror XXXI” will air Oct. 25 on Fox with its usually brand of satirical lunacy, as reported by cbr.com.
The recent Comic-Con@Home event debuted the teaser trailer for the eerie episode–you can watch it below–that will gave fans of the long-running animated series a good idea of the Halloween-themed show.
Highlighted in the trailer is an “Into the Homerverse” segment–an obvious spoof of the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film–that has Homer meeting a talking bear version of himself, Homer Barbera (an homage to Joseph Barbera, co-creator of the beloved Yogi Bear cartoon character).
Other segments of the special episode include “Toy Gory”–a parody of the Toy Story franchise–and “Be Kind, Rewind”–a spoof of the 2008 comedy starring Jack Black and Mos Def.
Last year’s “Treehouse” episode poked fun at a fantasy film and a horror TV show–the Oscar-winning The Shape of Water and the Emmy-winning Stranger Things. That episode also included segments starring a demonic Maggie and Homer’s spirit possessing new, fitter bodies.
The Simpsons–which is heading into its 32nd season–was created by Matt Groening and developed by James L. Brooks, Sam Simon and Groening. Brooks, Groening and Al Jean serve as executive producers of the Gracie Films Production series.
