One of this fall’s two “Treehouse of Horror” episodes will be full-length parody of Stephen King’s “IT,” “The Simpsons” exec producer Matt Selman revealed on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.
“The Simpsons” will air a double dose of “Treehouse of Horror” episodes this upcoming 34th season. That marks the first time in the show’s history there have been two “Treehouse”-branded episodes in a single Halloween. The first episode will take the traditional form of three different vignettes, but the “IT” parody will be the first time a “Treehouse” has focused on a single story for its entire half hour.
“We’ve never done a single fantastical, bloody, scary, dark story, told over the scope of the the 20 minutes and 40 seconds that is an episode,” Selman shared. “I think the fans are going to be really excited!”
