Fans of the hit Fox series Family Guy were devastated by the beloved character Brian’s unexpected demise in November.
Immediately web sites and petition sites were organized in an effort to bring Brian back. One petition site even boasts it has received over 130,000 signatures. It looks like fans are getting what they want, at least for a few episodes.
Rolling Stone is reporting that the Dec 15 episode of Family Guy is titled Christmas Guy. The synopsis is that Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas -- his beloved dog Brian.
Executive producer Steve Callaghan told Entertainment Weekly that Brian will have a romantic affair in an upcoming episode starring Maya Rudolph. Finally, the voice of the Griffin’s new dog Vinny is played by Sopranos star Tony Sirico, who only signed up for six episodes.
So, is Brian returning for good or only showing up for a few episodes now and then? Fox is being mum on giving out any answers. Fans are also curious to know if Brian was ever really going to be written off for good or was this whole thing just a media hoax?
