Carrie Fisher Set to Appear in 2 New Family Guy Episodes in 2017

Carrie Fisher, who died on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack, is set to reprise her role as Angela in two new Family Guy episodes.

According to Variety, the actress had completed work on the episodes, both of which are expected to air sometime in 2017. Fisher’s character, who is the brewery supervisor to series creator Seth MacFarlane’s Peter Griffin, has appeared in 20 episodes since originating the the role in 2005.

Fisher’s death at the age of 60 came four days after she suffered a massive heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles.

“Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around,” MacFarlane shared Tuesday on Twitter. “Family Guy will miss her immensely.”

Fisher is also set to reprise her role mother-from-hell Mia on Amazon’s UK comedy Catastrophe.

    Will Angela also die, or have a send off of some kind (that doesn’t require more voiceover obviously)? Which option should be best?

    I loved her work. Especially Star wars and Family guy.

    Question- does corporate sibling 20th Century Fox still own the rights to A New Hope? Or does Disney own the original now?

    RIp Carrie :/

    Actually her appearance count was closer to 30, but yeah I figured Angela would at least make a few more appearances. Was hoping it was so far in advance that there’d be appearances next season too but it seems to not be the case

    The google result for this page had as the excerpt “Carrie Fisher is set to reprise her role as Angela in two new ‘Family Guy’ episodes, both of which she recorded prior to her death.” Well, I dare say one doesn’t expect a corpse to do any voiceover work.
