Family Guy Website Fools Fans, Producers Confirm: Brian is Dead!

by at . Comments

It's over, Family Guy fans. You are going to need to let Brian go.

Two days after this Fox sitcom shocked viewers by killing off a main character, a website popped up called

It featured a countdown clock that teased a "special announcement" from this presumed dead canine and got fans wondering if he would be returning to the series in the near future.

In word, however, no. Brian really is dead. He is not coming back.

“The producers have confirmed that the ‘special announcement from Brian’ website is a hoax and was not created by anyone connected to the show, studio or network,” 20th Century Fox TV told Deadline of the site.

On Sunday night, the Seth MacFarlane-created program sent Brian to his grave via a car accident and quickly replaced him in the Griffin home with a dog named Vinnie.

Since then, a petition has been going around demanding the show resurrect this beloved pet.

What do you think of his passing?
