ProductionEdit

On July 16, 2013, it was announced that American Dad! had been cancelled by Fox. Soon after, cable network TBS would announce that it had picked up the show for a 15-episode 11th season, slated to premiere on October 20, 2014.[1][2][3]

The tenth season was initially to be the final one on Fox; however, on July 20, 2014, it was announced that Fox had three unaired episodes left for broadcast. Reports from Fox seemed to imply that these three episodes constituted a season of their own. Among multiple discrepant reports from TBS, one indicated that the three episodes were the beginning of the 11th season to resume on their network.[4]

Despite these episodes counting as the 11th season officially, the DVD release, as well as Netflix and Hulu, count this season as the first three episodes of season 12.
