Family Guy SHOCKS Viewers With The Death Of A Beloved Character! Find Out Who HERE!

Wow. We really can't believe Family Guy would pull something so serious!

But it seems Seth MacFarlane's usually ludicrous cartoon chose heartwrenching over hilarious on Sunday night.

After eleven seasons, the writers decided to kill off a MAJOR character! Executive producer Steve Callaghan says:

"Well, this was an idea that got pitched in the writers room and it sort of caught fire, and we thought it could be a fun way to shake things up. As soon as this idea came up, we started talking about what the next couple episodes could be and we got very excited about the way this change wil affect the family dynamics and the characters."

So who was the character? SPOILER ALERT! (obvi!)

It was BRIAN!

The Family Guy family dog voiced by Seth himself was hit by a car and couldn't even be saved by Stewie's inconveniently broken time machine.

So sad!

Brian was replaced by a new dog named Vinny played by The Sopranos Tony Sirico. Vinny promises to be a very different type of dog. Steve says:

"Oh they're very different. Brian was very smart and studious and intellectual, and Vinny is just a lot more of a rough around the edges."

We still can't believe it! Brian was such huge part of the show!

Will the death breathe new life into the aging sitcom? Or will this be remembered as the moment animation domination finally jumped the shark?

Will U keep watching?

    Asians all together can hear, and see what you're visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don't want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

    Brian is the only one I liked. Why couldn't they kill off Quagmire??

    this show is dying

  5. hmm says – reply to this


    All I gotta say about this is hopefully they bring Brian back. Yeah, he dies but maybe they come up with something to where he didn't actually die and comes back because I really love Brian. I haven't seen the episode yet, though and I don't really want to :(

    i highly doubt this is permanent, the show probably needed some attention. Brian is still credited for future episodes and Maya Rudolph confirmed last month that she is going to be playing his love interest in 2014.

    He will definitely be back. He is in an episode with Maya Rudolph next season I do believe.

    I love Brian! And no way to the Quagmire comment. If you google it tho, Seth MacFarlane has said he feels Family Guy should be over, but by contract still has a few seasons left. He wants to work on his music and other shows. IMO he might be trying to get it cancelled so it can come to an end sooner.
