A long-running comedy is doing so well in its new home that it has just been picked up for two more seasons. Variety reports that TBS gave the news to its animated hit “American Dad.”
“The announcement means that the comedy, which aired its first nine seasons on Fox before moving over to the Turner cable network in October 2014, will have a home on the network through 2018,” Variety reports. “’Dad’ also has a second home on TBS’ sister network Adult Swim, which presents an encore of each new episode after its TBS premiere.”
The show’s 11th season, which was announced back in November, is due to roll out early next year. The new order is for seasons 12 and 13 — with all three seasons to consist of 22 episodes each.
The Variety report adds: “’American Dad’ has been a strong performer for TBS, standing as basic cable’s No. 1 scripted series in the Monday 9 p.m. timeslot in adults 18-34 and No. 2 in the timeslot with adults 18-49. Overall, it reaches an average of nearly 4 million viewers per episode through its telecasts on TBS and Adult Swim, as well as through TBS’ on-demand, digital and mobile platforms.”
