For those who think that maybe the return of the once canceled animated comedy series Family Guy has run its course since being brought back from the dead, you may have one pivotal team member on your side: series creator Seth MacFarlane. In a recent cover story from THR, the man who has been dominating Fox’s Animation Domination with series like Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad, says he thinks the show may need to call it quits on TV. MacFarlane says, “Part of me thinks that Family Guy should have already ended. I think seven seasons is about the right lifespan for a TV series. I talk to the fans and in a way I’m kind of secretly hoping for them to say we’re done with it. There are plenty of people who say the show is kind of over the hill. But still the vast majority go pale in the face when I mention the possibility.” However, even if the series were to end, that wouldn’t be the end of the Griffins. MacFarlane said he would love to be able to make a movie every couple years, “Creatively, that would be the way to do it for me. Do a really fantastic final episode while the show is still strong.” Fans would be disappointed, but in a way it’s good to hear that MacFarlane himself knows that he might need to quit before the show overstays its welcome.
