"The Simpsons" are set to engage in a bloodbath with their late '80s counterparts in this year's "Treehouse of Horror" episode, capping off an epic season of crossovers on the long-running cartoon sitcom.

Entertainment Weekly reported Wednesday that the Simpsons family will appear on the series in the same guise they did on "The Tracey Ullman Show," where audiences were first introduced to one of TV's funniest families.

"We've implied that they were murdered and buried under the house, so this is expanding that thought," he said.

"If people want a real Halloween bloodbath, they get it."

The latest "Treehouse of Horror" airs on Fox on Oct. 19. And it's just one of a series of amazing crossovers that the series will see in the upcoming season.

"The Simpsons" will also air a crossover with "Family Guy" on Sept. 28.

A sneak peak of the episode shows the Griffin family arriving in Springfield, where Peter bonds with Homer before they engage in an epic fight, similar to Griffin's battles with a giant chicken.

These episodes will be followed by a crossover with "Futurama" which will air in November, Buzzfeed reported.

This isn't the first time that "The Simpsons" has done a crossover with another show. In 1995, "A Star is Burns" featured "The Critic's" Jay Sherman when Springfield hosted a film festival.

That episode went over poorly with "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening, who asked for his name to be removed from the credits as he was concerned people would associate "The Critic" with him, The Los Angeles Times reported.

But that shouldn't be a problem this time around. Groening created "Futurama" and Peter Griffin once appeared in a cheeky cameo on the series as one of Homer's clones. A "Tracey Ullman Show"-era Homer also appeared in that episode.
