Adult Swim has officially said their goodbyes to Family Guy after 18
years with an emotional promo! It was first reported within the last
few months that Family Guy would be totally shifting its syndication
networks due to the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney. It was
then reported that the final episodes of Family Guy would be airing on
Adult Swim on Saturday, September 18th, and this was further confirmed
when it was officially announced that all seasons of the series,
including the previously unavailable first 14 seasons, would be airing
with FXX and Freeform.

This officially meant that the series' 18 year run with Adult Swim was
coming to an end. Beginning its syndication with the network in 2003,
Family Guy had been one of the major pillars of the growing network in
those important early days. Adult Swim indeed has much more long form
original programming than it did in those early years, but there's a
lot to be said about how much Family Guy and Adult Swim had benefitted
from their time together. This hasn't been lost on Adult Swim either as
they bid goodbye to the series with one emotional promo. Check it out
below as grabbed by @AdultSwimNoCon on Twitter:

The promo sees Adult Swim animated originals such as Aqua Teen Hunger
Force, Squidbillies, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Toonami's TOM and
Sara, The Venture Bros., Birdgirl, and even the live-action Your Pretty
Face is Going to Hell waving goodbye before Family Guy's Griffin family
waves back. It's an emotional time for many as Adult Swim could be
attributed to the series' current popularity with Fox as well. Reruns
of the series (some of which aired as early as the week after new
premieres back in the heyday), premieres of scrapped episodes, longer
cuts, and DVD sales helped give Family Guy the boost for its return to
FOX a couple of years after its cancellation.

While it's no longer going to be airing with Adult Swim, Family Guy can
now be found airing seasons 1-19 on FXX on Monday, Tuesday, Saturday,
and Sunday nights from 8pm to midnight ET, and Wednesday nights from
8pm to 10pm ET. Freeform will air the episodes on Fridays from 4pm to
10pm ET. The upcoming Season 20 of the series will be premiering on
FOX, September 26th.

Trump won.
