¡Ay, caramba! FXX recently acquired exclusive rights to broadcast Simpsons reruns, and will stream all 552 episodes on their app FXNow. The FX subsidiary will show 12-hour marathons starting Aug. 21 through Labor Day. FXX won a bidding war for the Simpsons rights and will have to pay $1 million dollars per episode, according to RollingStone.

This marathon will lead up to the Simpsons' 26th season on Fox:

Even after 25 years, the producers of The Simpsons have managed to find ways to keep things interesting on the show. For one thing, they intend to kill off a major character. "We are doing this story for the same reason we do all others — we think it has a good emotional through-line," executive producer Al Jean said in October. "The story will be produced this year, though it may air in Season 26."

I wonder who they're going to kill of this time.
