They are one of the longest running TV couples but Homer and Marge are getting a divorce in the upcoming Season 27.

In an interview with Variety, The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean has revealed the the animated couple are headed for a split in the upcoming 27th season, set to begin this fall.

"It’s discovered after all the years Homer has narcolepsy - a chronic neurological disorder that affects the control of sleep, causing uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep, even during activities that demand attention - and it’s an incredible strain on the marriage."

However, the narcolepsy isn't the only thing to blame, as the EP shared that Homer has his eyes on another woman.

The new apple of Homer's eye will be one of the upcoming season's many guest stars, and is coming off of another guest stint, on popular ABC series Scandal.

"Homer and Marge legally separate, and Homer falls in love with his pharmacist, who’s voiced by Lena Dunham,' Al shared, adding: 'We’ll have cameos from the other women from Girls.'"

This isn't the first time Homer has gone astray, if we rewind our minds to Season 5 in the episode "The Last Temptation of Homer." Homer visited a hotel room with new coworker Mindy, though he was plagued with guilt because of Marge and the kids, and eventually called it off, reuniting with his loving wife.

Why would the producers choose to break TV's most lovable family up. With divorce rates rising around the globe, it seems only fitting to join in this common trend. THIS JUST CAN'T BE HAPPENING! What's going to happen to the Bart, Lisa and Maggie!?!

This is just to much to handle... and days after the announcement of Bart's death, does this mean the end of The Simpsons?
