Family Guy is coming back to BBC2 for the first time in nearly a decade, it has been announced.

The thirteenth season will be shown on the channel even though ITV2 will take over later in the year. It’s not currently known how long BBC2 will be airing it, though.

The last time the channel aired a Family Guy episode was back in 2007, before it moved to its permanent home in BBC3 – however BBC3 will soon become an online-only channel.

However, the popular Fox series will air its brand new 15th season this coming autumn exclusively on ITV2 – after they recently acquired it.

The multi-year deal agreed by show creator Seth Macfarlane and ITV will also see American Dad and The Cleveland Show move over to the new channel.

After the news broke, the BBC stated:

We are incredibly proud that the BBC has successfully aired Family Guy for the past nine years and built the series into such a hit in the UK.

However, when a show becomes so successful it often becomes a target for other broadcasters. We are sorry that it will not have a long-term home on the BBC.

So, get as many advertless episodes in as you can, as fast as you can, I’d say.
