TBS Renews 'American Dad' for Two Additional Seasons

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, TBS renewed the original animated comedy American Dad for two additional seasons - bringing it through its nineteenth season overall.

The renewal today means the long-running animated comedy will officially cross the 300 episodes milestone.

Seth MacFarlane, Matt Weitzman and Mike Barker created the comedy, with Weitzman and Brian Boyle serving as co-showrunners. 20th Century Fox Television and Fuzzy Door Productions produce.

"American Dad has achieved an incredible milestone," said Brett Weitz, General Manager of TNT, TBS and TruTV. "Matt and Brian are brilliant writers who consistently overdeliver on big comedy and even bigger absurdity. We look forward to continuing the momentum by giving devoted fans two more seasons of the Smith family."

"After these next two seasons, we will have over 300 episodes," added Weitzman. "Thus proving that whatever American Dad lacks in quality, we make up for in quantity."

"So turnt up to be picked up for two years!" added Boyle. "Making the show for TBS has been a dream because they are easily satisfied with the best!"
