Looks like we may get something in addition or instead of the direct to video movie, as there is talk that Fox is going to revive the show. With a fourth season. Appearently the ratings for CN's reruns and the strong sales for the DVD's, has perked their intrest. Yay!
MTFBWY and HH!!According to USA Today, Fox Television is considering resurrecting the FAMILY GUY animated TV series thanks to its impressive DVD sales and strong syndication ratings. The paper reports that "as many as 35 new episodes could return in January 2005," and Fox Television Entertainment Group chairman Sandy Grushow was quoted as saying that an executive decision would be made shortly.
This isn't the first we've heard of a return for FAMILY GUY. Last September the creator of the show, Seth McFarlane, told us exclusively that a direct-to-DVD movie was in the planning stages with Fox. "Timeframe, you're probably looking at a year, a year-and-a-half down the line. It will take a while to make. If we could do it within a year it would be very exciting," McFarlane said at the time. Could it be plans have changed and the movie is out the window in favor of nearly three dozen new episodes?
