More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. The all american father is coming back. Fox renews American Dad for season eight of the animated show. Making Seth MacFarlane have two of his shows renewed and another one still on the bubble. American Dad got renewed for season eight and will come back with more episodes to the animated block on Sundays.
American Dad follows staunch GOP supporter and CIA agent Stan Smith (Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA.
Stan’s blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that allows her to turn a blind eye toward Stan’s unabashed arrogance. Meanwhile, Stan constantly butts heads with his 18-year-old left-wing activist daughter, Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father’s buttons whether it’s by helping the homeless, demanding women’s rights or supporting gun control. Hayley’s 14-year-old brother is the geeky yet cocky Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing Dungeons & Dragons and obsessing about the opposite sex.
The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members. There’s the sassy and sarcastic space alien, Roger (Seth MacFarlane), who lives in the attic and loves to play dress-up; and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German guy who always throws in his two cents regardless of whether anyone is listening.
This screwball family full of radically different personalities is just trying to figure out how to love and trust one another in a bi-partisan world. And with a guy like Stan in charge of national security, it’s guaranteed to be one hilarious ride.
