Family Guy Hints at Big Changes Future episodes suggest Brian's resurrection By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Dec 6, 2013 3:48 PM CST 11 comments Comments This photo provided by Fox shows Lois Griffin, left, with hapless husband Peter, in a scene from "Family Guy." (AP Photo/Fox) (Newser) – Spoiler ahead: The apparent death of a favorite Family Guy character may not have marked his end. Brian the dog is set to appear in future episodes, Entertainment Weekly reports, including one Dec. 15 in which "Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas." Then there's an episode due next season in which Brian develops a crush on a character played by Maya Rudolph. But the details of Brian's likely return—which follows a fan petition begging for his life—remain hazy for now.
