‘American Dad!’ Gets Renewed For Two More Seasons By TBS, Will Run Through 2018
American Dad! has been renewed for two more seasons by TBS, ahead of the show’s season premiere.
AMERICAN DAD! PICKED UP FOR SEASONS 12 AND 13
American Dad! moved to TBS a year ago for its tenth season, after 9 seasons on Fox where the show originated. The animated comedy series, created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, had a successful first season on the network for American Dad! last fall. The show was a hit in the ratings, named the number one scripted series on Mondays at 9 pm. with adults 18-34. Soon, the show was picked up for an 11th season, and in a surprising move, TBS has decided to move forward with the series, renewing it for two more seasons — 12 and 13 — ahead of Season 11, which is set to premiere in early 2016.
“American Dad! has thrived since coming to TBS and Adult Swim, demonstrating the Turner portfolio’s ability to build enduring hits through a combination of smart programming, savvy promotion and extensive multiplatform distribution. We look forward to keeping the crazy-but-lovable Smith family around for a long time,” said Turner Broadcasting’s Deborah Bradley.
Each season will run 22-episodes on TBS and Adult Swim, which airs new episodes after TBS, meaning American Dad! should be on the air at least through 2018.
