Seth MacFarlane's weird but supremely entertaining world of animation isn't leaving anytime soon. The Family Guy and American Dad creator recently came off a whopping $200M deal and now his show, American Dad has been renewed for two more seasons.
TBS has handed out a two-season renewal for animated comedy American Dad, taking it through its 18th season in 2022 and its landmark 300th episode. The news comes on the heels of MacFarlane decamping from American Dad and Family Guy producers 20th Century Fox TV for a five-year, $200 million overall deal with NBCUniversal. Season 16 returns this year on a date to be determined.
"TBS has been a spectacular partner to us on this hilarious series, and we’re thrilled the partnership will continue,” said Marci Proietto, evp at 20th TV Animation. “It’s a win for the show, and most of all a win for the millions of fans who love it as much as we do.”
The renewal for American Dad, co-created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, was in the works before MacFarlane inked with NBCUniversal.
The news was announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, where TBS and other WarnerMedia brands were presenting to press.
