Fox animation fans will be happy to hear that both “Family Guy” and “Bob’s Burgers” will be returning with at least one additional season after they finish up on their current runs. “Family Guy” is just about done with its 16th season, while “Bob’s Burgers” has several more episodes before it will finish up its eighth season. For those wondering about Fox’s other animated series, they can rest easy, as "The Simpsons" was already renewed for its 30th season back in 2016, according to Deadline.

‘Family Guy’ milestones and achievements

Season 16 featured a huge milestone for “Family Guy,” as the show premiered its 300th episode, called “Dog Bites Bear.” Season 17 will also feature another big achievement for “Family Guy” as it will mark the 20th anniversary since it first aired.

Despite this, though, “Family Guy” hasn’t been running for 20 years straight, due to pending about three years off the air after being canceled temporarily. Regardless, “Family Guy” is still only the second Fox animated show to have lasted this long. Among adult animation, the only other show to have lasted longer than “Family Guy,” besides “The Simpsons,” is Comedy Central’s “South Park,” which will start its 22nd season later this year.

‘Bob’s Burgers’ milestones and achievements

While maybe not as impressive as compared to “Family Guy” reaching 300 episodes, by the end of Season 8, "Bob’s Burgers" will air its 150th episode. On top of that, in 2020, the “Bob’s Burgers” theatrical film is expected to be released. While little is known yet as to what the movie will entail, it will likely raise the stakes of the show and bring the Belcher family into one of their greatest conflicts yet.

With the release of its film, “Bob’s Burgers” will join the short list of adult animated series that have had theatrically released films. Among this list is Adult Swim’s “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” with “Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters,” Fox’s “The Simpsons” with “The Simpsons Movie,” Comedy Central’s “South Park” with “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut” and lastly MTV’s “Beavis and Butt-Head” with “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.”

Despite “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy” and “Bob’s Burgers” all being renewed, Fox typically has four animated series running at a time. This may indicate that when all these shows return for their next seasons, they may have a new animated sibling airing alongside them. There has been some word of new animated series, with at least three supposedly being in the works. According to Deadline, Fox has ordered pilots for animated series from Kevin Hart and Amy Poehler, while Variety says that one animated script has been bought from M. Night Shyamalan as well. None of this guarantees that any of these shows will see the light of day, but at least Fox seems to be pushing forward with its animated series.

Fox isn't the only network to be renewing its animated hits, though, as Adult Swim just ordered a monumental amount of new “Rick and Morty” episodes [VIDEO]. Regardless of whether you're a fan of Fox or Adult Swim, it seems like a good time as any to be a fan of adult animation.
