Family Guy has been picked up for Seasons 20 and 21, while Bob’s Burgers will be back for Seasons 12 and 13. Each show will now run through at least 2023.
“Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers are key pillars of our network’s success,” said Michael Thorn, Fox’s president of entertainment. “By taking the genre to new heights and driving pop culture in meaningful ways, they’ve laid the foundation for making Animation Domination one of the most powerful program blocks in all of television. Both of these two-season renewals affirm once again our commitment to animation and empower us to continue in our build as the leader in the space with distinct and fresh new comedies. We’d like to thank Seth [MacFarlane], Loren [Bouchard] and their entire teams, not to mention our partners at 20th Television, and we’re excited to continue these great shows with them.”
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has affected production schedules across the TV industry, Fox’s animated series are some of the network’s only scripted shows returning with new episodes this fall.
Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy will kick off their new seasons on Sunday, Sept. 27, at 9 pm and 9:30 pm, respectively; they’ll be preceded by the returns of The Simpsons (Season 32) and Bless the Harts (Season 2).
