Fox has renewed flagship animated comedy series Family Guy for a tenth season and its spinoff The Cleveland Show for a fourth season. The two shows are part of Seth MacFarlane’s toon troika on Fox, along with American Dad, which was recently renewed for a seventh season. Family Guy and Cleveland Show are on different production schedules. Family Guy is now in its ninth season, while Cleveland Show only in its second, so it has been assured to stay on through the 2012-13 season. “For nine seasons, our viewers have been cracked up, delighted, surprised and, at times, gloriously disturbed by the mind of Seth MacFarlane – and they keep coming back for more,” Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said. “The Griffins and the Browns have become cornerstones of our Sunday nights, and we can’t wait to find out what new adventures Seth, Mike and Rich cook up for them next season.”
