Family Guy will return next season, and Adam West will be a part of the new season. He played the Mayor on the animated series, and he recorded lines for five episodes of the new season before his death. Those episodes will air with his character still involved.
“We haven’t exactly decided how we’re going to address the departure of Adam West’s character from the series. In fact, this is something that we’ve been dealing with concerning the loss of Carrie Fisher [who was a recurring guest voice]. But what I can say is that both of their departures from the show will certainly reflect the importance that each of those characters — and actors — had within our series.”
The producer also teased what fans will see out of West’s character next season:
“At one point, Mayor West comes into possession of the $1 bill as he is hover-boarding through town with a rat in his pocket. Mayor West riding a hoverboard with a rat in his pocket — that’s certainly something to look forward to…. Later in the season, Mayor West is called upon to preside over a ceremony for a group of millennials. It does not go well.”
Family Guy will return on October 1. Are you excited for the new season? Tell us what you think.
