Sources tell RCTV that both Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers have been renewed on Fox for the 2019-2020 broadcast season. They were quietly renewed a couple months ago in order for both series to continue production since they require extra time to both write and animate. The development of the current seasons 17 and 9 is still ongoing.
The renewals come alongside the recent renewal of The Simpsons for two additional seasons.
“If you’re an animator, there is no better place to showcase your work than Sunday nights on Fox. This is the network that set the standard for primetime animation. The Simpsons and Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers are the heavyweights of the genre, and we’re intent on finding the next generation of culture defining animated comedies to join them,” Collier told reporters last Wednesday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour.
