An update on Family Guy's renewal, straight from http://www.planet-familyguy.com:

"Our inside sources have revealed that the possible return of “Family Guy” is looking very good. Seth MacFarlane is getting the band back together so to speak, as well as finalizing budget talks with Fox. We should have more information with regards to who’s going back to the show some time soon. If all goes well we could be seeing up to 35 new episodes starting by January of 2005. We will of course keep you updated as more information becomes available!"

This news looks very hopeful for Family Guy fans!  big grin

Why renewal Family Guy, why not renewal Futurama, I say renewal Family Guy, Futurama, and canceled The Simpsons because its now old, plotless boring and its gong downhill since 1998 or 1999 or 2000 and the time Futurama started.

"We executives love filth....... filthy rich that is...... being filthy rich that is, Ha Ha Ha Ha!"

Fox executive:"I'm so happy with my evil plan, goodbye comedy and wit, soon we'll have the perfect network, all of our shows will be shit"
(Sing it to the tune of "Skinners Evil Plan" from "The Presdient Wore Pearls" )

I'm still stoked about Family Guy coming back though, hopefully it won't pull a Ren & Stimpy.

It's one of the only shows to be revived twice.

Or, "A Double Zombie Show"!!

Ooooh, boogie-boogie-boogie!
Don't forget, Seth Whatshisname is doing a movie too, unless he's cancelled it altogether.

Yep. I'd rather a Family Guy season 4 than a movie.

In this interview, Seth McFarlane acts as if Family guy is definitely coming back.

Same here. It would be nice to get some more, if only direct-to-video.

Its already gone into production hasn't it? I'm sure I read it on a website somewhere recently.

I must get the new complete series boxset though, as the originals didn't have any extra features on them.

No - there's been lots of talk about it going into production again, as well as get-togethers with old Family Guy staff, and even plans for the Season 4 premiere script - but still nothing has been set in concrete until now.

If they bring back Family Guy (and IF they do the same for Futurama) it would be a waste of time unless they brought back everyone who originally worked on it. There's no point in bringing back a show if they change the cast and crew.

Family Guy, Futurama, and South Park are all tied for my favorite shows right now(I just can't pick one, they're all so good), so seeing Family Guy come back from the brink of exctinction just makes it seem that much cooler. I can't wait to see what's in store for the 4th season. Anyone have any information on when it's coming back? I've heard as early as September(doubtful), but also about January 2005(which seems more accurate). Any input?

I saw an interview, that I got linked to from Planet Family Guy, (you can find it here, http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/news/macfarlane/)   Seth talks about many things about the future of the show, the possiblity of where they are going to air and even gives away the plot to a script(well kinda).  It looks as if Seth and company will finish the episodes by December and submit them to FOX and then I guess they will play it be ear. I would expect to see it up and running in early 2005, either on Fox or Cartoon Network.

There was a story about this in today's edition of USA Today.

 http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2004-03-24-family-guy_x.htm

Some interesting facts from that article:
- the order is for 35 episodes
- The two volumes of DVD's sold 2.6 million
- the episodes will be shown on CN
- it isn't clear if the new episodes will be shown on F*X.

Don't soil yourself just yet.  Here's another article that gives Cartoon Network as its source, and it claims the new order is only for 22 episodes (this figure is also quoted in Variety).

It also verifies that F*X has not decided if they want to air the new episodes.  They may be content with licensing fees from CN, future DVD sales, and potential future syndication.

I don't have words to say how upset I am about Fox completely disregarding Futurama's fanbase, so I'll let this guy do it for me...  mad

Anyway, way to go FG fans, you won!

Is it just me, or does that Fox guy quote make him sound like a master machiavelian manipulator?
I expected it to go like this:

See? It fits! Fox is run by Dr. Colossus!

Also, kudos to FG and it's terrified subjects. May they bounce in peace.

Clearing stuff up:

The order is for 22 eps.

It is only guaranteed to air on CN, though my bets are on FOX airing them, which they still reserve the rights to, and I see no reason why they wouldn't. FOX would air the eps first, and later on [as] would.

I think the Family Guy fanbase is larger (and more profitable, cha-ching!) but one thing you'll notice is that peelified (assumed #1 Futurama message board) GREATLY exceeds www.damnyouall.net  in use. One can only wonder why the hell that is. Whatever.

Anyway, I've always thought of Futurama and Family Guy as Cookies and Milk, if you're gonna have one, you may as well have the other. It seems unlikely, but here's to the chance Futurama comes back, as well. *cheers*


EDIT- Ok, alexa.com has DYA rated higher, but not as much posting goes on at DYA. Odd.

Oh, and Hypno Toad says "Hi." now come and get him off our ass. >=(

Why does this have more members? Because Family Guy has a larger mainstream fanbase, and those sorts wouldn't be seen dead on a internet forum. Only geeks and losers go to those!  no no

"Mainstream" viewers are the ones who buy the most shit, though. =P

Anyway, like I said, for some reason DYA is visited more, but peel has more posts for some reason.

I know that it's true, absolutely!

I never got into Family Guy so I don't really care. I think the show more deserving to be resurrected should be brought back (Futurama). Futurama is more interesting than Family Guy and has more quality thatn Family Guy. Family Guy is pretty much the (current) Simpsons with different characters

No its much funnier than the Simpsons. The Simpsons suck ass. Family Guy is edgy and hilarious and equal with Futurama in terms of comedy.

Is any of this getting through to you?

Question about Family Guy, in the episode where Lois's aunt dies and leaves her mansion to her. When she died Peter said '*laughing nervously* be carefull what you wish for right Lois?" But at theh funeral when he's dancing with her corps he doesn't seem to realize that she's dead. was he kidding or something?

He knows she's dead, but he's just so happy when he finds out he's getting the mansion that he starts dancing with the corpse. When he realises what he's doing he tries to cover it up by saying "My god she's dead!".
