Fox renews 'Family Guy,' 'Cleveland Show'

Cleveland

Fox has renewed Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy and its spinoff The Cleveland Show.

No big surprise in either case: Family Guy will be back for a 10th season and Cleveland is getting its fourth. Fox also announced that the Family Guy finale will be its one-hour Return of the Jedi spoof that was released on DVD last year, while the Cleveland closer has the family going to Comic-Con. Fox has already renewed American Dad and The Simpsons, so with this the full Sunday night lineup will return. “For nine seasons, our viewers have been cracked up, delighted, surprised and, at times, gloriously disturbed by the mind of Seth MacFarlane – and they keep coming back for more,” said Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly. “The Griffins and the Browns have become cornerstones of our Sunday nights, and we can’t wait to find out what new adventures Seth, Mike and Rich cook up for them next season.”
