'Family Guy': Brian [spoilers]! It's a 'Christmas Guy' miracle

Well, that didn't last long. Just weeks after killing off a beloved character -- and plenty of fan outrage later -- "Family Guy" has brought back Brian from the dead. The show killed off the Griffin family dog, voiced by creator Seth MacFarlane, in the Nov. 24 episode, but in Sunday's (Dec. 15) episode, "Christmas Guy," Brian came back for good thanks to a genius move by baby Stewie. Brian was run over by a car after Stewie had destroyed his time machine, but in "Christmas Guy," Stewie ran into his future self, and then traveled back in time to save Brian from the accident. After the Christmas episode aired, creator MacFarlane poked a little fun at the fan outcry. "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you?

"Oh and hey... thanks for caring so much about the canine Griffin.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/family-guy-brian-lives-its-a-christmas-guy-miracle.html

Brian's Back From the Dead! Family Guy to Resurrect Family Dog for Upcoming Episodes

After his tear-jerking demise back on the November 24th episode, Griffin family dog Brian is set to appear again! But how will he be resurrected? Family Guy fans can officially breathe a sigh of relief. Despite the shocking character death that rocked the world of cartoon fans everywhere, you haven't seen the last of our favorite wise-cracking canine. Entertainment Weekly reports that Family Guy's Brian WILL continue to play a role in the series -- not only during the current season but also in an episode with Maya Rudolph next fall -- though the exact nature of how he will be "resurrected" is unclear. Are you excited to see Brian return from the dead? Sound off in the comments and stick with us for more TV scoop from Celebified.

Brian Is Coming Back to Family Guy, It Seems

Remember when Brian died on Family Guy  and they said it wasn't a stunt, but no one really believed them? Yeah, keep on not believing them. Though that Brian announcement site ended up being just a fan site,  Entertainment Weekly says he will be back. It's not clear exactly how he'll return, but the logline for the December 15 episode reads, "Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas.” Beyond that, Maya Rudolph was cast over a month ago to play a runner whom Brian falls for in an episode scheduled for next fall. Hopefully on the 15th we'll get a sense of what the point was of all of this, beyond publicity (which, to be fair, totally worked) and distracting us from the fact that, like Brian, we too die, but we don’t have an evil genius to bring us back.  Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2013/12/brian-is-coming-back-to-family-guy-it-seems.html
