'Family Guy' Character Will Have Me Too Moment, Producers SaySeth MacFarlane took a personal interest in the episode, which revolves around serial assaulter Glenn Quagmire.The Me Too movement is hitting “Family Guy,” and producers say a popular cast member will finally have to deal with the repercussions of his inappropriate behavior.
During an interview with reporters Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, “Family Guy” producers revealed that a future episode will directly address the problematic behavior of Glenn Quagmire, a character known for his many serial sexual assaults.
“We are a year out, so we are writing episodes this month that won’t air for a year,” showrunner Rich Appel told reporters. “So the Me Too stuff became such a cultural force while were thinking of next season, and we are taking it head-on with an episode around Quagmire.”
“We’re trying to be pretty fair about the whole history of the character,” Appel said. “Seth encouraged us and even took a special interest while we were writing the episode.”
Appel remained mum on the exact plot, but you can see clips from the next season below.
