Family Guy Season 18: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

Anyone who is remotely interested in sitcoms knows Family Guy is one of the finest animation series to have graced television since the likes of Flintstones, South Park and The Simpsons. Currently, in its seventeenth season, the 12-time Emmy award nominee has Seth MacFarlane and Fox Broadcasting Company to thank for the creation of the beloved Griffin family including Peter, Lois, Meg, Chris, Stewie and Brian. The franchise has spawned several spin-offs, films, merchandise, books and videogames, amongst which The Cleveland Show (that ran from 2009 to 2013) is a notable mention. Family Guy is particularly famous for its cutaway gags, The American sitcom recently premiered its seventeenth season on September 30, 2018.

The Griffins family has been entertaining millions of families across the globe since its premiere on January 31, 1999. The show has been a subject of various controversies throughout its run and had run into trouble during its fourth season which led to FOX discontinuing the show. It was picked up by Adult Swim to conclude the season but its success overturned the cancellation as the show was revived for another season. The rest as we say is history.

Family Guy Season 17 Cast: Who is in it?

The animated show basically stars the following characters and voice over artists: Seth MacFarlane brings to life the characters of Peter Griffin (head of the family), Brian Griffin (the family’s anthropomorphic pet dog), and Stewie Griffin (their devilish prodigy of a son who is often shown exhibiting violent characteristics and a behaviour befitting adults). Mila Kunis came on board from season 2 to voice Meg Griffin (Peter and Lois’ eldest daughter who is often bullied and mocked by her own family). Alex Borstein voices Lois Griffin who is Peter’s wife and Seth Green voices Chris Griffin (Stewie and Meg’s brother, a dim-witted, overweight and almost miniature version of Peter Griffin) as well as Neil Goldman (a recurring character). There are several other characters on the series, one of whom includes Glenn Quagmire voiced by Seth MacFarlane, the promiscuous, sex-crazed deviant of a neighbour who works as an airline pilot. The entire dysfunctional family should be back for another season.

Family Guy Season 17 Plot: What is it about?

The show features the Griffin Family: couple Peter and Lois, their three children Meg, Chris, and Stewie. The animated series is a window to the world of the Griffin Family. The series showcases different situations in every episode. Common situations are presented in a funny and appealing light to the viewers. Gags are a common part of the show. The pet dog can speak and comes to their rescue many a time. Their rapport as a family is adorable with all their silly fights and patch-ups which tend to inspire many gags. It was revealed at the Comic-Con that Season 17 of Family Guy would see some mockery of US President Donald Trump.

Season 17 starts with Brian falling head over heels in love with Jess Schlotz (played by Casey Wilson), but he finds out she is dying of cancer. He asks her hand in marriage but her cancer regresses, much to Brian’s disappointment. Towards the end of season 17, Stewie finds out Brian is trying to get in the good books of wealthy widowed heiresses by attempting to win their affection and becomes involved with one rich widow. Stevie teams up with Brian to win the estate but they discover that Quagmire has been conning them back. This lovable family should be back to entertain us with another season. Until we have a confirmation from the network, we can’t speculate what the upcoming season will look like. Stay tuned for details.
