Is the theme tune stuck in your head yet? Family Guy debuted on the Fox network in 1999 and has (early cancellation aside) remained on our screens to this day. And it’s now found a home on Disney Plus, thanks to the launch of the new service Star in February 2021.
The animated sitcom, a much more adult-orientated version of The Simpsons which Fox is also home to, is known for its dark, daring humour and pop culture references. It’s a show that Seth McFarlane has a big hand in, having created it, written for it, and voiced the biggest characters.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Family Guy online in the UK.

What is Family Guy about?
Family Guy is about the life of the Griffin family. They are parents Peter and Lois, children Chris and Meg, baby Stewie and pet dog Brian – both of which can talk, well Stewie sort of can. The popular animation has been going for a long time with many continuing to be drawn to the pop culture-filled misadventures of the family and their fellow residents of Quahog.

How many seasons of Family Guy are there?
The show is currently airing its 19th season so we presume that seasons 1-18 will be on Disney+ Star when it launches and if it follows the path of The Simpsons, new seasons should be added shortly after they finish airing.
An interesting fact about Family Guy, the show could well have not been on the air anymore as it was originally axed after a three-season run. Thankfully, Fox saw the error of their ways and eventually brought it back and it remains a staple of their schedule today.
