The final episode of The Simpsons 24th season will feature a visit to Iceland, RÚV reports.
Fans of the show will get a double-dose on May 19 as two back-to-back episodes will end the season. One episode will be entitled ‘The Saga of Carl Carlsson’, named for Homer Simpson’s colleague at the nuclear power plant and drinking buddy, who also happens to be an African-Icelander.
In this episode, Homer, Carl, Lenny and bartender Moe win a lottery jackpot together and plan on splitting it, but Carl decides to make off with the money and heads to Iceland. The other three won’t let him get away with it though, and will embark on a journey up north.
This won’t be the first time Iceland makes an appearance on the show. A 2010 episode of The Simpsons lampooned the bank crash of 2008 and the resulting protests, with cartoon protestors holding comically Google translated signs.
