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

Sorry 'Family Guy' fans, Brian countdown clock is a hoax

"Family Guy" did the unthinkable Sunday (Nov. 24) and killed off Brian, the Griffin family dog. But fans seem to be going through the five stages of grief in an atypical order, because the reaction has gone from anger (No. 2) back to denial (No. 1). Unfortunately, the website claiming to carry a special Brian-related announcement has been revealed as a fan-created hoax. Sorry to break it to you, but your beloved, cynical, canine voice of reason really, truly is gone. Following Sunday's episode, which saw the Griffins bury Brian after he was struck and killed by a car, some fans were so upset that they created a petition to bring the character back from the dead. (It wouldn't be unheard of for that top happen, talking baby genius Stewie did at one point have a working time machine. Also, this is a show on which the family dog talks. So.) But apparently a new... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/sorry-family-guy-fans-brian-countdown-clock-is-a-hoax---hes-dead.html
