‘The Simpsons Treehouse Of Horror’ Takes On ‘It’ This Year

And you thought Pennywise was bad before.

The Simpsons this year will treat fans to a double scoop of its annual Treehouse of Horror special and, according to Variety, one of the episodes will play games with Stephen King himself.

The long-running show’s executive producer, Matt Selman, said the upcoming 34th season will contain two Halloween-themed chapters–with one highlighting a full-length version of the horror master’s classic It novel. Pennywise vs. Bart? That one’s a toss-up.

“We’ve never done a single, fantastical, bloody, scary story told over the scope of the 20 minutes and 40 seconds that is an episode,” Selman said. “I think the fans are going to be really excited.”

Selman added that the other–more traditional–Treehouse of Horror episode will deal with the Death Note manga series. The producer described this episode as an “incredibly authentic Simpsons anime” that fans “are gonna freak out over.”

Season 34 of The Simpsons will premiere Sept. 25, but there is no word yet on when either of the Treehouse of Horror episodes will air.
