Ahead of American Dad!’s Season 17 premiere, Deadline reports that TBS has renewed the hit animated comedy series for two more seasons, 18 and 19. Series co-creator/executive producer Matt Weitzman and executive producer Brian Boyle have signed new deals to continue as showrunners. Season 17th season of American Dad!, from 20th Television Animation, premieres Jan. 24, on TBS.
“American Dad! is reaching rarified air with 18th and 19th season pickups that only a handful of shows have ever accomplished; this speaks to the zeitgeisty humor that resonates with audiences, and to the dedication of its creators and brilliant TBS network executives,” said Adrienne O’Riain and Sam Linsky, Co-Heads of Scripted Programming, TBS, TNT, truTV.
The series, which was picked up by TBS following its cancellation by FOX, has been a cornerstone of the TNet’s animation strategy, with a slew of new projects in the pipeline. It currently ranks as the #3 comedy on cable.
