With the salary standoff settled, and the future of The Simpsons secure through at least the 25th season, Fox is moving on to more pleasant matters — promoting the 22nd installment of the show’s annual “Treehouse of Horror” special.
To that end, the network has released a terrific poster featuring, among other things, Homer as Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen, and Edna getting cozy with the Prince of Darkness. Here’s the official description:
In the 22nd annual installment of “Treehouse of Horror,” Homer channels Aron Ralston (guest voicing as himself) after a boulder traps his arm; a venomous spider bite leaves Homer paralyzed; then Ned Flanders, devout preacher by day, transforms into a cold-blooded vigilante by night; and Bart and Milhouse get caught in inter-planetary warfare in the all-new “Treehouse of Horror XXII” episode of THE SIMPSONS.
“Treehouse of Horror XXII” airs Sunday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
