'Family Guy' And 'Bob's Burgers' Renewed For Another Season By Fox

Good news for fans of irreverent animated comedy shows - Family Guy and Bob's Burgers have officially been renewed for another season by Fox.

The hilarious family comedy from creator, writer, producer, actor - basically everything - Seth MacFarlane will be back for a 16th season at the very least. The show is so popular that you'd think that this won't be the last season.

The show stars Mila Kunis, Seth Green, Alex Borstein, Mike Henry, and - of course - MacFarlane.

Their 16th season will also take them up to their 20th anniversary. Cause for celebration surely?

In the latest season they also passed a new milestone when they aired their 300th episode. They average 2.55 million live viewers in the USA and also managed to produce an episode in which they had fewer commercial breaks than usual, which has got to be nice.

It is produced by 20th Century Fox and is produced by Rich Appel, Alec Sulkin, and - you've guess it - Seth bloody MacFarlane.

MacFarlane has got two reasons to be cheerful, as his other show The Orville has also been renewed for another season.

As well as Family Guy, viewers will also be able to catch at least one more series of Bob's Burgers after it was also given the green light by Fox.

The animated comedy show focuses on the Belcher family and their burger joint. It stars Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman, H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, and Larry Murphy.

The show won the Emmy award for best animated series back in 2017 and will be returning now for a 9th season. It was created, written, and is produced by Loren Bouchard - there's a bit of a theme developing here - and is a co-production between 20th Century Fox and Bento Box Entertainment.

There has even been talk of a feature film that could be out in 2020.

Other shows that have been given the go-ahead for new series' are 9-1-1, Empire, The Resident, Gifted, Star, and probably Fox's greatest ever show (even though it jumped the shark about 15 years ago) The Simpsons.

The Simpsons recently broke yet another record as it went past Gunsmoke as the prime-time scripted TV show with the most episodes ever - 636.

That's a hell of a lot of Simpsons.

However, it's not all positive news. As you've no doubt heard, Fox has cancelled Brooklyn Nine Nine, as well as The Last Man on Earth, and The Mick.

Luckily for B99 fanatics, it will be picked up by NBC.
