“The Simpsons” creators have their eyes set on one of television’s hottest properties: “Stranger Things”.
The timeless animated television show will air a “Stranger Things”-themed segment for “Treehouse of Horror XXX”. Even more perfect, the special is the 666th overall episode of “The Simpsons”.
The promo poster for “Treehouse of Horror XXX” is a picture-perfect “Simpsons” spoof of “Stranger Things”. Hearkening back to season 1 of the beloved Netflix series, Lisa Simpson plays Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) while Bart, Nelson, and Martin portray Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), respectively.
“Stranger Things” is not the only property “The Simpsons” will spoof for its spooky 666th episode. The animated series will also parody Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning “The Shape of Water”.
“Treehouse of Horror XXX” will air in season 31 as the show’s 30th Halloween special. It is expected to premiere on Oct. 20.
