The Simpsons have been really hyping up their 666th episode, dubbed the “Treehouse of Horror XXX,” and now we’re getting our first proper look at it. The episode is spoofing a number of recent horror movies and shows including Stranger Things and Guillermo del Toro‘s The Shape Of Water.

The 30th overall “Treehouse of Horror” episode features a demon Maggie, a mission to rescue Milhouse from another dimension, Homer’s spirit trying out some new bodies and Selma’s love story with the alien in the basement.

They’ve been teasing the episode since the summer with a sweet looking poster arriving back in July.

Producers on the show have been touting up the 666th episode tag since 2018 as well.

“Next year, ‘Treehouse of Horror XXX‘ will coincidentally be Simpsons episode 666,” executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly. “As we planned it in 1989!”

As with most “Treehouse of Horrors” episodes, the characters displayed in the themes leading to the episode don’t necessarily mean we’re getting Stranger Things or The Shape Of Water spoofs directly but they point towards the overall feel we’ll be getting with the new episodes.
