Who doesn’t love spending quality time with the Griffin family?
There are so many terrific animated shows and the 2010s ushered in some of the most popular at present.
On the other hand, it’s also a decade in which already fond favourites cemented their status even further, proving season after season why they’re so iconic and respected in the realm of TV.
Family Guy is a shining example of such.
Created by Seth MacFarlane, the series first arrived back in 1999 and immediately struck a chord with audiences, later making a splash in terms of home media sales.
Over the years it became a global phenomenon with merchandise adorning shelves everywhere and catchphrases being adopted into fans’ everyday vocabulary.
We’re now into season 19 and, as always, it’s worth looking ahead…

As highlighted by TV Line, the series has been picked up for two more seasons.
By renewing it for both seasons 20 and 21, it’s expected that Family Guy will air new episodes through 2023, at the least.
The source includes that the popular Bob’s Burgers has also been renewed for two more seasons at Fox.
In a statement – according to TV Line – Fox’s president of Entertainment Michael Thorn has expressed:
