'Family Guy': Brian the Dog Coming Back? Fans Petition for Return

By Morgan Chilson   |   Tuesday, 26 Nov 2013 04:59 PM

“Family Guy” fans have gone online to demand the show’s writers resurrect talking dog Brian, who died on the last episode, and so far, they’ve netted more than 51,000 signatures on a petition on Change.org.

Started by Aaron Thompson of Tuscaloosa, the petition states, “The writers of Family Guy didn't just kill off one of their creations, they killed off the dog who has lived in our homes for the last 15 years. They killed the dog we all have come to love. They killed America's dog!”

Rumors hit the Internet that Brian will have a second coming on the popular animated Fox show, but one website everyone was looking to, www.briansannouncement.com, turned out to be a hoax, Deadline reported. Originally, Deadline posted that the website, which has a countdown on it with the words “A Special Announcement from Brian,” might be an indication Brian really wasn’t dead.

But producers of the show confirmed that wasn’t a Fox website, Deadline said, which may have killed some of fans’ hopes for Brian’s future. Still, TVLine pointed to a plot for a Dec. 15 Christmas show that says, “Stewie hatches a plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas.”

The “Family Guy” Griffins adopted another talking dog, but Deadline pointed out the actor voicing the character, Tony Sirico of "The Sopranos," is only signed on for six episodes so far.

Fans are not happy about Brian's death (and they’re still hopeful he'll return).
