Chris Longo Jan 12, 2018

TBS has signed up for at least two more seasons of American Dad...

It’s a safe bet that soon American Dad will be old enough to legally buy booze, as TBS confirmed season 16 And season 17 during its TCA presentations this week.

American Dad spent its first 11 seasons on Fox before moving to TBS in 2014. The series has aired 235 episodes as it heads into season 15, fresh off a Christmas special. Created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman, it quickly separated itself from its cousin Family Guy and still maintains a devoted fan base.

Quitely, American Dad is one of television’s longest-running programs, and it recently got some recognition with Dee Bradley Baker (the voice of Klaus) receiving an Emmy nomination in 2017 for Outstanding Voice work.

Rounding out the voice cast is MacFarlane (Stan/Roger), Wendy Schaal (Francine), Scott Grimes (Steve), Rachael MacFarlane (Hayley), and

The Fox cartoon staple, which is about to celebrate its 300th episode milestone, has been dropping hints for years that something was amiss. 

At the time, the jokes were likely just considered jabs at celebrities whom the show's writers didn't care for. But, it turns out, there was more to it. 

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with showrunners Richard Appel and Alec Sulkin and creator Seth MacFarlane to better understand how the apparent warnings appeared in the show.

Seth MacFarlane's The Orville Might End Up Having a Family Guy Crossover

Seth MacFarlane's Star Trek-inspired series The Orville seems to have been getting a lot of love from the fans. It's a great series and if you aren't watching, you should be! It sounds like one episode next season may go in a very odd and interesting direction.

There's a chance will see the sci-fi series crossover with MacFarlane's other hit show, Family Guy! According to executive producer Rich Appel, a script has been written and it's just waiting for approval. He says:

"I sent the script on a slow boat [to approve]. But we end up live on the bridge of The Orville. We'll see."

So, we might actually see characters from Family Guy end up on The Orville ship interacting with the cast... fascinating. Some might think that would be silly and take things too far, but I'm curious to see how it might turn out. It could work brilliantly!
