'Family Guy' brings back Brian: Seth MacFarlane speaks out about it all

Last night "Family Guy" shared with fans that Brian Griffin is back and alive again. Viewers were going to be really upset if this didn't happen. On Dec. 15, Gossip Cop shared what Seth MacFarlane had to say about the decision to kill Brian and then have him return.

Of course they have always had plans to bring Brian the dog back. It was part of the plan and the series actually only had one episode without him. Viewers went really crazy about the idea of Brian being dead and the show got a lot of press over it.

Seth MacFarlane went to Twitter and made it sound like they had a reason for doing this all along. He tweeted, "And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash." That explains why they killed him.

A bit later Seth said, "I mean, you didn’t really think we’d kill off Brian, did you? Jesus, we’d have to be f*cking high." He realizes that this would not have been a great idea.

"Family Guy" airs new episodes on Sunday nights on FOX. Please like my Facebook to stay up to date on the latest entertainment news.
