Fox Renews Family Guy and American Dad for the 2013-2014 Season

While all the other networks are busy announcing their renewals for next season, Fox is doing them one better by announcing renewals for NEXT next season. Okay, it's only because animated shows run on a year-in-advance production cycle, but still.

Fox has ordered an eleventh full season of Family Guy and an eighth full season of American Dad, ensuring that both series will remaind on the air through the 2013-2014 season. Wait, American Dad has been on the air for eight seasons? Time, where have you gone? Both orders are reportedly for the standard 22 episodes.

Currently not invited to the renewal party is Seth MacFarlane's other Fox animated series The Cleveland Show. While it's already renewed for 2012-2013, its future beyond that is still in question.

How long do you think Family Guy can go?

    Family Guy has a lot of bad to average shows now.

    The one with the wife beater was awful.

    Not a surprise. I doubt any show made by Seth McFarlane will EVER get cancelled by Fox if Seth doesn't agree. After all they went through to snatch Family Guy away from Cartoon Network, Seth owns them and he knows it. Expect his shows to say on as long as Seth wants to do them.
