After ten seasons on Fox, Seth McFarlane’s animated series American Dad hopped over to its new home at TBS. According to THR, TBS is looking to keep the show around a bit more and has ordered a twelfth season. After less than a month at TBS, the network has ordered 22 new episodes.
“We are thrilled with American Dad’s performance to date and are confident the show is going to continue its tremendous success,” said Turner executive vice president, head of program acquisitions, content strategy and licensing Deborah K. Bradley. “By ordering a new season while the current season is early in its run, we’re ensuring that Seth MacFarlane and his team will have the freedom to take the misadventures of the CIA agent Stan Smith and his family to a whole new level.”
American Dad has been securing good ratings with TBS since its acquisition with both new and old episodes alongside re-runs of it’s sister show, Family Guy.
