The Nov. 24th episode of "Family Guy" shocked fans when the the beloved family dog, Brian Griffin was killed after being hit by a car. The shock quickly turned into anger as fans vowed to never watch Family Guy again and numerous campaigns to bring Brian the dog back hit social networking sites. According to Entertainment Weekly on Dec. 5, 2013, fans may be able to retract their threats, as it looks like Brian will return to his family in a Christmas themed episode on Dec. 15.

Future 'Family Guy' television listings are the reason the return of Brian Griffin has sparked an online frenzy. The information of the Dec. 15 episode 'Family Guy' episode titled 'Christmas Guy'credits MacFarland as Peter Griffin, Stewie Griffin, and Brian Griffin. In an episode planned to air next fall, Saturday Night Live veteran Maya Rudolph is the voice of a runner that Brian Griffin falls in love with.

Series creator and voice of Brian Griffin, Seth MacFarland and Fox Broadcasting Company have not yet commented on the return of Brian the dog. How the martini-drinking canine will return to the show is still unknown.

Seth MacFarland stated that he and writers of the animated series killed off Brian the dog as a "fun way to shake things up," however, fans found nothing funny in his demise. One fan went as far as raising money to build a life-sized Brian Griffin statue in Providence, R.I. The target amount was $10,000, but as of Dec. 6, 2013, a total of $12.00 was raised.
