    Oh dear – now if they kill off Edna, then it will be the second wife of Ned to die. I am hoping they instead have her transfer to another school, or give the character a proper send-off

    The showrunner has said they’re not killing her off. They’re retiring her character.

    Yeah I’m sure they will, but how will they do it? She’s too iconic and important to just have disappear like Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz

    How will they be able to give her a proper send off? She won’t be there to record any lines.

    I mean, she could show up in the background from time to time and have no dialogue (i.e. just like Jessica Lovejoy), but a lot of scenes are in Bart’s classroom, so they’re going to have to give his class a new teacher. Which leads me to think that the only solution may be to have it mentioned that she left her position at the school, divorced Flanders, and moved out of Springfield.

    R.I.P. Marcia Wallace

    Ms. Krabappel was literally my favorite character of The Simpsons….. 

    She deserved her Emmy in 1992 wahhhh

    I always wanted her and Seymour Skinner to run off together…

    An absolutely hilarious lady with incredible talent and comedic timing. I love Match Game and she was one of my favorite panelists. Very sad that she is gone but happy for the laughs she gave us.

    Simpsons plans tribute to Marcia Wallace this Sunday
    by James Hibberd on Oct 31, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    Fox and The Simpsons producers are making some changes to Sunday’s programming to pay tribute to the passing of longtime Simpsons actress Marcia Wallace.

    First, the network is replacing a repeat of American Dad with a classic Simpsons episode that focused on Wallace’s beloved character Edna Krabappel.

    The network will re-air the 16th episode of the show’s third season, “Bart the Lover,” which offered a sympathetic take on Bart’s cynical, lonely teacher. In the episode, Bart discovers Krabappel has posted a personal ad, so he begins writing her bogus love letters. After setting her up on a fake date, he spies her sitting by herself in the restaurant. When she’s still there hours later, he’s no longer amused by his prank and sets about trying to make things right. The episode won Wallace an Emmy Award in 1992.

    “Bart the Lover” will air as the 7:30 p.m. lead-in to an all-new Simpsons, titled “4 Regrettings and a Funeral.” The new episode will then conclude with a tribute card from the producers honoring Wallace. Also, the episode opens with an epic-length couch-gag spoof of The Hobbit.

    Wallace died at age 70. “I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace,” producer Al Jean said in a statement earlier this week. “She was beloved by all at The Simpsons and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character.”

    Apparently, Fox had problems getting the rights to air “Bart the Lover” out of syndication; it aired “The Ned-liest Catch” instead.

    This isn’t the first time this happened; Fox wanted to air “Stark Raving Dad” the Sunday after Michael Jackson died, but couldn’t get the rights in time and had to wait a week.
