Season 31 will also see the premiere of the 30th instalment of the Treehouse of Horror anthology, as well as the eighth episode of the season which is titled ‘Thanksgiving of Horror’.

In other Simpsons news, the show recently recast the role of Homer’s best friend Carl Carlson, following Hank Azaria’s decision to step down.

Azaria decided earlier this year to distance himself from the role of Carl and also Apu, as the show’s producers vowed that white actors would no longer voice non-white characters.

Carl will now be voiced by Better Things actor Alex Désert, and he made his first appearance in the season 32 premiere on September 25.
