'Family Guy,' 'Cleveland Show' Renewed by Fox
Both Seth MacFarlane animated series will return for 10th and fourth seasons, respectively.
Fox has renewed Sunday animated staples Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.
Family Guy will return for a 10th season and Cleveland Show will be back for a fourth. Fox will unveil its 2011-12 schedule at its upfront presentation on May 16.
“For nine seasons, our viewers have been cracked up, delighted, surprised and, at times, gloriously disturbed by the mind of Seth MacFarlane – and they keep coming back for more,” said Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox. “The Griffins and the Browns have become cornerstones of our Sunday nights, and we can’t wait to find out what new adventures Seth, Mike and Rich cook up for them next season.”
Sunday’s episode of Family Guy (6.5 million, 3.2) was the highest-rated on Fox. Midseason entry Bob’s Burgers was already renewed for a second season.
The season finale of Cleveland Show airs this Sunday, with an hourlong ender of Family Guy featuring the gang returning to a galaxy far, far away, taking place May 22.
