American Dad Renewed Season 12 13

American Dad! Renewed for Two Seasons at TBS

TBS is rather fond of its American Dad!.

The animated series has been renewed for two more seasons, the network announced Thursday.

The order, for 22 episodes each per Seasons 12 and 13, ensures that the Seth MacFarlane comedy will be on the air through 2018.

American Dad! moved to TBS in 2014 after a 10-season run on Fox.

Season 11 will air on TBS and sister network Adult Swim in early 2016.

  1. I look forward to the Trump parodies.

    One of my favorite shows. Far superior to Family Guy.

    Your info is incorrect about the seasons. I’m guessing you’re going by the production codes or what-not but American Dad! is going into its 13th season. Season 11 was considered the 3 episodes that aired in September 2014 on Fox before moving to TBS in October 2014 for season 12 (that’s what’s being listed elsewhere). That means the 2 additional seasons are 14 and 15. Just clearing that up. :P

      There are three possible sets of numbering of the show depending on how Season 1 and the recent 3-episode run are counted. None have been confirmed as definitive. Your numbering aligns with Wiki, this site’s numbering aligns with the show’s producers. If you use the production codes, then it was Season 9 that the show moved to TBS with.

    Nice. Hopefully Rachael MacFarlane (who voices Haley) will find an on-camera acting role in a live-action project soon (she’s almost 40, and all of her acting roles so far have been voice-only).

    Also, are they gonna find a new VO for Francine since Wendy Schaal is getting old (currently 61 years old).

    • Will says:

      So you’re saying that older woman shouldn’t or can’t work in television? Harry Shearer is 71, should they start looking for his replacement on The Simpsons?

      • Jim J. says:

        No, but the trouble with animated series is an aging voice cast (and crew). Wendy Schaal (who will be 64 at the end of this renewal) just hasn’t done any outside projects since 2006. It’s probably like her contract with “American Dad!” forbids it or something.

        Also, imagine a woman in her early-mid 60s dressing up in a bikini. Francine is in her late-30s or early 40s. Go look up “60-year-old woman wearing a bikini”. One example is Jane Seymour (62), or maybe Helen Mirren (63).

        • Ames says:

          Um, this is is one of the dumbest comments I have ever seen. It is VOICE-OVER acting. I have been watching American Dad since the beginning and I had no idea how old Wendy Shaal was nor did I think her voice was suddenly getting too old for the character. And I have certainly never wondered what the voice-over actor would look like in real life in a bikini just because the cartoon character is in a bikini. Do you think it’s weird for Seth McFarland to voice a dog on Family Guy because he isn’t a dog in real life?
          Maybe just enjoy the show instead of daydreaming about how the voice over actors look or live in real life.

          • Jim J. says:

            “Just enjoy the show”? Maybe it would be a good idea if I was a casual fan of the show, but I am not.

            Also, “Do you think it’s weird for Seth McFarland to voice a dog on Family Guy because he isn’t a dog in real life?” No; This isn’t “Wilfred”. And Francine is a HUMAN character, not an anthropomorphic animal. Apples and oranges. I think Ms. Schaal may have dressed up in a bikini in a few films during the 1980s. Personally, the outfits the characters wear on those shows sometimes MAKE me “daydream” about its VO wearing said outfit in real life.

            Sometimes it just helps for a voice-over actor to be (physically) attractive in real life, and do some outside projects, live-action or animated. Look at Scott Grimes (who voices Steve); he’s had a main role in NBC’s “ER” for a few years, and a recurring role on FOX’s “Party of Five”.
