After debuting a parody of Stephen King‘s horror film It titled “Not It” earlier in Season 34, The Simpsons now returns for a Treehouse of Horror XXXIII Halloween special featuring three segments offering special takes on The Babadook and Westworld as well as a full Death Note parody titled “Death Tome.”

Early looks at the Death Note tribute, the second segment of the special, have emerged offering a first look at characters such as Marge and Homer in special anime art styles. So far, the short looks quite promising, featuring impressive animations courtesy of South Korean studio DR Movie, which has worked on productions such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Batman (The Animated Series), and Teen Titans.

Beyond the screenshots, a short has also surfaced showing Lisa Simpson as the receiver of the powerful “Death Tome.” Set in a dystopian city mired in pollution, Lisa expresses her frustration with the mess saying, “the human race is 20 cow farts away from total extinction and we deserve it.” With her newfound power, Lisa will likely set off on a journey to fix the world, meeting unforeseen consequences along the way. Teased in the background are anime versions of the twins Sherri and Terri as well as Disco Stu.

The special Treehouse of Horror XXXIII episode airs via FOX stations on October 30, 8PM EST and will stream via Hulu the next day.

Elsewhere in entertainment, House of the Dragon Season 2 begins filming in early 2023.
