Hulu is set to get two Family Guy holiday specials later this year.

As the animated sitcom celebrates its 25th anniversary since its premiere, it was confirmed at PaleyFestLA that the Seth MacFarlane-created series would air two holiday specials later this year.

Family Guy’s Season 22 finale is set to air on Wednesday, April 17 at 9:32 p.m. ET on Fox, with the episode made available on Hulu the next day.

The series celebrated its 25th anniversary on Jan. 31, 2024, and the cast and EPs participated in a panel at PaleyFest LA to celebrate the milestone on Friday, April 19.

Creator and executive producer Seth MacFarlane voices Peter Griffin, Stewie and Brian; Alex Borstein voices Lois; Seth Green voices Chris; Mila Kunis voices Meg; and Arif Zahir voices Cleveland Brown.

MacFarlane recently talked about the future of the series, saying he doesn’t see the show ending anytime soon.

“At this point, I don’t see a good reason to stop. People still love it. It makes people happy and it funds some good causes,” MacFarlane said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “It’s a lot of extraneous cash that you can donate to Rainforest Trust and you can still go out to dinner that night.”

He continued, “There was a time when I thought, it’s time to wrap it up. At this point, we’ve reached escape velocity. I don’t know that there’s any reason to stop at this point unless people get sick of it. Unless the numbers show that people just are, ‘Eh, we don’t care about Family Guy anymore.’ But that hasn’t happened yet.”

Family Guy premiered in January 1999 on Fox and was canceled after two seasons. A last-minute pickup at the network gave the show a third season before it was axed for good. Reruns on Cartoon Network and DVD availability gave the show new life, making it a cult show among fans. Fueled by its resurgence, Fox picked up the show again and premiered Season 4 in May 2005.
