Ahead of the premiere of its 17th season on January 24, 2022, TBS is locking in two more seasons of the series, and have also reached new deals with series co-creator and executive producer Matt Weitzman and executive producer Brian Boyle, which will see them return as showrunners for two additional seasons.

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 at TBS, TNT, and truTV.

Co-created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Weitzman, American Dad initially premiered in February 2005 and ran on Fox initially until 2014, when the series was dropped by the company after airing 11 seasons. However, after airing on TBS and Cartoon Network (via the Adult Swim late-night block), American Dad‘s success picked up once again, and TBS has since renewed the series multiple times.

“We are all so grateful to TBS for this two-season pickup,” said Weitzman in a statement regarding the news.”Getting seasons 18 and 19 means we will finally be able to tell the stories we only dreamed of telling in seasons 16 and 17. Much thanks also to everyone at 20th Television Animation for all their continued support of American Dad‘s many years of corrupting our nation’s, nay, the world’s youth…most of whom are now about to turn 40.”
