Plot Synopsis

Seth MacFarlane's animated comedy series that revolves around a CIA agent whose main objective in life is national security, With his doting wife, Francine, at his side, Stan Smith--CIA agent, anti-terror operative, and upstanding citizen--runs a household that includes his ultra-liberal daughter, Hayley; his dweeb son, Steve; a sarcastic alien named Roger; and a lascivious German goldfish, Klaus. For the 2012-2013 season, AMERICAN DAD features the guest voice of Nathan Fillion, Will Forte, Rupert Grint, Jon Hamm, Alison Brie, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Charlie Day. Plus, Danny Glover voices a Christmas demon in the eighth season's holiday episode. On Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 9:30pm ET/PT, Fox presented the 150th episode of AMERICAN DAD, with Jeff having to prove his love for Hayley to Emperor Zing in order to find his way home from the spaceship that abducted him. Fox aired the Season 10 premiere of AMERICAN DAD on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 9:30pm ET/PT, as Steve and Snot ended up raising two fast-growing babies after trying to use a cloning machine to create dates for prom night. This show's 2013-2014 season features these guest voices: Becki Newton, Cloris Leachman, Ellie Kemper, Alison Brie, Jane Krakowski, John Cho, Olivia Wilde, T.J. Miller, Zooey Deschanel, Terry Crews and Stanley Tucci. On Sunday, September 14, 2014 from 9-10pm ET/PT, Fox aired a one-hour special premiere of AMERICAN DAD. In the first episode, "Roger Passes the Bar," Roger is forced to sell his beloved attic bar to a restaurant chain after suffering a heart attack, and a sexy new next-door neighbor (guest voice Jane Krakowski) promises to take Steve and his friends' virginity in return for housework. Then, in the night's second episode, "A Boy Named Michael," Roger moves in with Greg and Terry. AMERICAN DAD moved to TBS for its new season premiere one month later. On Monday, October 20, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, TBS debuted the season premiere of AMERICAN DAD, immediately following a five-hour marathon (4-9pm) of encore episodes. Note that the TBS website called this program the Season 12 premiere (but now calls it the Season 10 premiere in its online episode guide), while other sources called it the Season 11 premiere (TBS press release), a continuation of the eleventh season (FOX press release), or a continuation of the tenth season (Amazon on Demand), which started in September on Fox. In this new episode, "Blonde Ambition," Hayley decides that she might get more attention if she becomes a blonde when her efforts to save the planet prove hopeless. Meanwhile, Stan and Steve go on a mission to find a new home for the Smiths. On Monday, November 7, 2016 at 8:30pm ET/PT, TBS premiered the twelfth season of AMERICAN DAD. In the season opener, "Father's Daze," Stan keeps reliving the same Father's Day in a parody of the movie GROUNDHOG DAY. After a four-month break, AMERICAN DAD returned with new Season 12 episodes on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on TBS. In the spring premiere, "Whole Slotta Love," Francine becomes less attracted to Stan when he gets involved with slot car racing. Roger becomes a stewardess to perform comedy routines on the plane but is upset when another stewardess is funnier than him.

In the season ender, "West to Mexico," Stan becomes a wanted man, running from Roger the bounty hunter, and ends up in a town in need of a good guy to help Principal Lewis, Francine, Steve and Hayley. Two years earlier -- on Thursday, August 27, 2015 -- TBS announced that it renewed AMERICAN DAD for two more seasons, adding 44 episodes to the series -- 22 each for Seasons 12 (which just ended) and Season 13.
