TBS took over control of the series from Fox after the end of its 11th season in 2014, bringing the series back for a new installment of 15 episodes.
American Dad! centers on super patriotic Central Intelligence Agency agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, Va.
TBS is adding to its block of animated comedy with a new series called Final Space, which will begin its run on February 26, 2018 at 10:30pm, directly following longtime hit, American Dad. The series surrounds a spaceman named Gary, who's working off a prison sentence. The series was created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, and executive-produced by co-showrunner Brian Boyle along with MacFarlane and Weitzman. Unbeknownst to Gary though, his new companion is being pursued by the evil Lord Commander, who has designs on using Mooncake's powers for nefarious purposes. Voice actors include Rogers, Fred Armisen, Tom Kenny, David Tennant, Tika Sumpter, Steven Yeun, Coty Galloway, Ron Perlman, Gina Torres, Andy Richter and Conan O'Brien also provide voices.
"Final Space has been an actual dream come true for me. I wanted to create an epic sci-fi comedic serialized animated adventure with a plethora of heart ever since I was a kid", said Creator and Executive Producer, Olan Rogers. "Final Space has comedy, genuine emotion and truly heartbreaking moments".
"Animation has played a huge role in making us the number one comedy network", Brett Weitz, executive vice president of programming for TBS, told Variety. "We will keep the momentum going with the two season pick up of "American Dad" and finally introducing the world to the brilliantly constructed misadventures of Gary in 'Final Space'".
