Family Guy Season 22 Release Date and Time Slot
As the finale of Family Guy Season 21, which includes the show’s 400th episode, premiered a few hours ago, the fans have once again been speculating when the much anticipated Season 22 is all set to return to their television screens. If you are wondering the same, then we can assure you that the beloved American animated sitcom isn’t going anywhere.
If you recall, back in January 2023, Fox announced that the series had been renewed for seasons 22 and 23, taking the show through the 2024–25 television season! According to the reports, the twenty-second season of Family Guy will be making its return quite sooner than you have been anticipating and is set to premiere on September 17, 2023, at the same time slot of 9:30/8:30c, with “Fathers and Recreation.”
To say the least, this is an exciting update for the fans, who can now be relieved to know that the show hasn’t been renewed for just one season but two seasons in advance. The official Twitter handle of the show also confirmed the renewal update among its followers by posting a picture of Peter Griffin being all excited, quoting, “season 22 and 23, let’s gooooo!” Take a look at the official post below:

Family Guy Season 22: What to expect in the new season?
Family Guy currently holds the title of Fox’s most-streamed program on record and continues the trend this season, averaging 5.1 million P2+ viewers. In addition to this, the shows currently rank among the Top 10 comedies for the 2022–23 season, with this year marking “The Simpsons'” fourth, “Family Guy’s” fifth, and “Bob’s Burgers'” second consecutive season to lead the list. With such great reception, it is obvious that the network will aim to make the series more exciting than before!
So, it is expected that the upcoming season will live up to the expectations of fans worldwide. We would also like to highlight that most of the plotlines have been kept under wraps, but it has been rumored that the new season will explore Stan Thompson finally finding work at Hennessey O’Callaghan’s Fishing Business, working on the S.S. Thompson in “Return to the Seas.”
In addition, Peter Griffin returns to his old fishing job on his new boat, the Revamped S.S. More Powerful Than Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, and the Incredible Hulk Put Together. Alongside that, Brian takes Peter’s job at the Pawtucket Brewery when the latter quit it to go back to his fishing job. These are just some of the plotlines that are being debated by the fans and hinted at by the network, which make sense if we consider the overall character arcs and the story of this animated series, which makes complete sense.
Until any other confirmation about the plot is made, we urge the readers to be patient, and, in the meantime, the fans can debate and express what they want to see in the new episodes.
Family Guy Season 22 Cast and Crew
The 22nd season of Family Guy will continue to provide a humorous take on current events, with the main cast of the series which includes activities of the dysfunctional Griffin family, consisting of father Peter Griffin, Lois, a stay-at-home mother and piano teacher in early episodes Meg who is their often bullied teenage daughter who is also constantly ridiculed or ignored by the family, Chris their awkward teenage son, and Stewie, their diabolical infant son.
Living with the family is their witty, sarcastic, English-speaking anthropomorphic dog, Brian, though he is still considered a pet in many ways, and resides in their hometown of Quahog, Rhode Island. Family Guy is a 20th Television Animation production. Seth MacFarlane is the creator and executive producer. Rich Appel and Alec Sulkin serve as executive producers and showrunners, while Steve Callaghan, Tom Devanney, Danny Smith, Kara Vallow, Mark Hentemann, and Patrick Meighan are executive producers.
Family Guy Season 22 Episodes and Streaming Options
The next season is expected to include at least 26 episodes with an average runtime of 20–27 minutes per episode, with some select episodes having an average runtime of 33–88 minutes, which can vary from season to season. As mentioned above, the episodes will start their rollout on September 17th, 2023 with the first episode titled “Fathers and Recreation,” and conclude their run with the finale episode sometime later in the same year, with the release window speculated to be around March 2024.
Of course, this is just pure speculation from our end, and the episode count is subject to change and will be officially confirmed later.
