The panels for the animated Fox comedies American Dad and Family Guy took place back-to-back.  Very little was revealed at the American Dad panel, with really the only noteworthy thing being that there was a table reading by the voice actors of the show, so we’ll just jump into the Family Guy panel.  Here are the highlights courtesy TV Squad.

  • The panel for Family Guy featured Seth MacFarlane, Seth Green and the producers and writers of both Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.
  • Upcoming episodes will feature: A new dog in the Griffin house that is always happy, which will force Brian away; Stewie and Brian going back in time to 1939 Poland and bringing Mort Goldman along and a takeoff on the Sliders premise with Stewie and Brian traveling to different parallel universes.
  • They confirmed that this season will see a sequel to the Star Wars parody Blue Harvest.  It will be a parody of The Empire Strikes Back and be called “Something Something Something Dark Side”.
  • Still no premiere date for The Cleveland Show.
  • MacFarlane said that they are “putting a helluva lot of work on the show.” and that “You will not be disappointed”.
  • James Woods will be returning to Family Guy sometime this season.
  • Asked about why Stewie is no longer trying to kill his mother, MacFarlane said that they try to get back to it, but “It’s hard to do this one note thing.” He added that, despite being a cartoon, the character of Stewie needed to expand.
