Bob's Burgers, Family Guy Sticking with FOX for 2 More Seasons

As broadcasters, cable networks, and streamers continue building up their adult animation library after the COVID pandemic showed just how resilient animation productions can be even in midst of social distancing FOX is making sure Bob's Burgers and Family Guy stay put for at least two more years. The two series join Bless the Harts and The Simpsons, which was picked up for 31st and 32nd seasons in early 2019 (with Deadline Hollywood reporting that negotiations are underway on a "major Simpsons renewal)- with FOX's "Animation Domination" block launching this Sunday, September 27 with new episodes.

"Family Guy and Bob's Burgers are key pillars of our network's success. By taking the genre to new heights and driving pop culture in meaningful ways, they've laid the foundation for making Animation Domination one of the most powerful program blocks in all of television," said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, for Fox Entertainment. "Both of these two-season renewals affirm once again our commitment to animation and empower us to continue in our build as the leader in the space with distinct and fresh new comedies. We'd like to thank Seth, Loren, and their entire teams, not to mention our partners at 20th Television, and we're excited to continue these great shows with them."
