Family Guy to finally make a comeback! Yes, it’s official! The renowned American television sitcom ‘Family Guy’ is all set to hit our television screens with its season 19.
For those who don’t know what FamilyGuy entails, let me give you an insight. The sitcom revolves around the Griffins, a family of five with their dog Brian majorly exuding human traits. The rest of the family consists of Peter and Lois- the parents with their three children: Meg, Chris, and Stewie.
Family Guy Season 18 Recap/Summary
In the finale episode of the Family Guy 18th season, we saw Chris being fat-shamed by Principal Shepherd witnessed by the whole school. After this, he is fired from his post and later takes shelter with the Griffins at their house.
Simultaneously, Stewie publishes a book named “Flunky- The Dumb White Dog” which is widely recognized by the people and portrays Brian as an idiot. Later, Brian files a defamation lawsuit against Stewie but loses instead since he still emanates a dog’s natural behavior. In the end, Principal Shepherd is hired at the school again and Brian takes his sweet revenge.
Family Guy Season 19 Plot: What will happen?
The storyline and script are still a mystery to all of us. The show is occasionally known to adapt the real-life threats such as rape, domestic violence, homophobia, and many others. However, these situations in the show were mocked and made fun of by the characters since it’s a dark comedy involving insensitive and sad characters which have led the show to garner serious controversies.
Similarly, we could imagine the Family Guy mocking and insulting the situation of Covid-19 and its aftereffects. Another predicted scenario could be where the entire family is self-isolated and scared to make even the tiniest bit of contact with each other. It is possible for Chris to have acquired the virus and therefore the paranoia doubles in the household.
On the contrary, we may not see the Griffins enduring the quarantine season because the creator of the show, Seth MacFarlane uploaded a short video on his Instagram handle on 26th March 2020 of Stewie and Brian (pencil drawings) doing a podcast where they discuss COVID-19. The duo begins with mocking self-isolation, to later sharing ‘life hacks’ but end up showing sincere concern.
I believe the makers know better than all of us combined. And to prove my point, the last eighteen seasons of the show have been nothing but successful since its first release in the year 1999.

Update (June 8, 2020): The starting of the season 19 will feature that peace has been restored in Quohog, but some criminals from Springfield have emerged to attack Quahog. In order to save both the cities, the Griffins need to team up with the famiglia Simpson. It is required to defeat two new foes – Kevin Spacey and Kevin Bacon.
