American Dad cast

Emmy-nominated Animation Domination staple AMERICAN DAD has been renewed for a eighth season, bringing the series through the 2012-2013 season, it was announced by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

Roger the Alien had this to say when he heard the news:

“This is fantastic news. But you do realize I’m not real, right?”

American Dad follows the lives of ultra-conservative, staunch GOP supporter and CIA agent Stan Smith (Seth MacFarlane) and his eccentric family that includes Francine (Wendy Schaal), his ditzy-but-lovable wife; Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), his 18-year-old left-wing hippie daughter; Steve (Scott Grimes), his geeky, 14-year-old son; Roger (Seth MacFarlane), the selfish and sarcastic cross-dressing space alien; and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish. The fan-favorite series airs Sundays (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

You can be sure to expect lots of hijinks from the Smiths this spring! Roger attempts to make Steve a “cool kid” by letting him drive other kids around in a tractor, but the plan quickly backfires. Meanwhile, Francine gets a job at Stan’s office, but she cramps his style; and Roger starts dressing like a teenage girl and quickly seduces Steve’s best friend, Snot (guest voice Curtis Armstrong). Upcoming guest voices for this season include Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Anjelica Huston, Elisabeth Shue, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Burt Reynolds and Grammy Award winner Cee-Lo Green.
