We're Getting More Family Guy And Bob's Burgers, As Both Shows Have Been Renewed

Fox's animation lineup will include new seasons of The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Bob's Burgers.


In addition to renewing The Simpsons, Fox has now renewed two of its other marquee animated shows for new seasons to air in the 2019-2020 season. Family Guy and Bob's Burgers have been renewed, sources told The Hollywood Reporter. The renewal orders actually came quietly months ago, the site reported, though Fox has yet to officially announce the news.

Family Guy and Bob's Burgers might not make a lot of money or attract the highest number of viewers, but they make lots and lots of money from streaming and merchandising deals, THR said. The same is reportedly true for The Simpsons.

Family Guy is in its 17th season, while Bob's Burgers is in its ninth. According to THR, the deal to renew both shows was made months ago ahead of the closing of Disney's deal to buy the majority of Fox's assets, including Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, and The Simpsons, for $72 billion.

In addition to the new season of Family Guy, a report claimed that Fox was moving ahead with a new Family Guy movie--and it's been a very long time coming.

As for The Simpsons, the show's renewal order for Seasons 31 and 32 will bring the animated program up to an unthinkable 713 episodes.
