The Long Goodbye: Adult Swim Says Farewell to ‘Family Guy’



Adult Swim has officially said their goodbyes to Family Guy after 18 years with an emotional promo. It was first reported within the last few months that Family Guy would be totally shifting its syndication networks due to the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney.


It was then reported that the final episodes of Family Guy would be airing on Adult Swim on Saturday, September 18th, and this was further confirmed when it was officially announced that all seasons of the series, including the previously unavailable first 14 seasons, would be airing with FXX and Freeform.


This officially meant that the series’ 18 year run with Adult Swim was coming to an end. Beginning its syndication with the network in 2003, Family Guy had been one of the major pillars of the growing network in those important early days. Adult Swim indeed has much more long form original programming than it did in those early years, but there’s a lot to be said about how much Family Guy and Adult Swim had benefitted from their time together. This hasn’t been lost on Adult Swim either as they bid goodbye to the series with one emotional promo.
