'Family Guy': Comic-Con 2012 - live blog

Hello again and welcome to the latest Digital Spy live-blog direct from the San Diego Comic-Con 2012. We're back in the convention centre's Ballroom 20 to bring you live updates from the Family Guy panel...

Expect story teasers and plenty of laughs as creator and voice artist extraordinaire Seth MacFarlane takes to the stage alongside Mila Kunis (Meg), Alex Borstein (Lois) and Seth Green (Chris), plus executive producers Mark Hentemann, Steve Callaghan and Kara Vallow!


14:28That's a wrap on a rather brief and odd Family Guy panel here at Comic-Con 2012 - stay tuned to Digital Spy for more live-blogs, video content and news direct from San Diego!


14:27They've squeezed in one more fan question - how do you become a voice actor? "Be really talented and funny," Alex deadpans.


14:26Final fan query! What will the next 'Road...' episode be? 'Road to Vegas' will see Stewie and Brian travel to Vegas - it's the season 11 finale...


14:24How did Seth M find the voice actors for the show? Alex - a MadTV veteran - was Seth's only choice for the role of Lois, while Seth G impressed him by basing Chris's voice on Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs.


14:21Does Chris miss the Evil Monkey? Seth Green argues that Chris may have bonded with his nemesis. Alex Borstein follows his response up with a string of random swears, just so the sign language interpreter on stage will have to mime naughty words.


14:19Will Seth produce any more musical albums, one fan wants to know. The audience chants for him to sing and he treats us to a tune, Stewie-style. Seth Green films it on his phone - expect the footage to emerge on YouTube soon.


14:15Turns out an upcoming episode will feature Chris moving in with Herbert and... erm... sharing a bed. *shudder*


14:14Towelie asks if there will be any further movie spoof episodes - "We've thought about doing Star Trek or Indiana Jones, but it's all about getting the rights and not everyone is as enlightened as George Lucas."


14:12The next fan is dressed as South Park character Towelie. "What are you supposed to be?" asks Seth, in Peter Griffin mode. "A f**king Capri Sun?"


14:09Another odd fan simply asks Seth: "What's your formula?" "There's a lot of people here on pharmaceuticals," says a baffled Seth.


14:07Will Seth's busy schedule delay his Flintstones revamp? It's "on hold", the man himself confirms. "There's no exact schedule."


14:06Straight into fan questions - and one fan is eating from a jar of mayonnaise with a spoon. This isn't a character bit - he's just a weird guy. "Did you have a question or did you just want to performance art this Mayo character?" asks Seth.


14:02As for the big episode 200, Stewie and Brian will reverse the direction of time, revisiting iconic moments from the series. But, y'know, backwards.


14:01More season 11 scoop - one episode sees Quagmire accidentally marry a hooker, while another will see Peter become a meth dealer, Breaking Bad style...


13:59The voice cast and execs take to the stage - Seth Green has already French kissed producer Steve Callaghan. Just because.


13:58Here we go at last - the season 11 premiere will see the Griffin family attempt to climb Mount Everest - huh.


13:47To fill the time before the panel actually begins, I am watching a YouTube compilation of every single Family Guy Chicken Fight.


13:32To compete, surely it's only appropriate for Family Guy to bring Adam West out on stage? Or is that just wishful thinking on our part?


13:29The Family Guy panel starts shortly here at Comic-Con - just so you're informed, the preceding Simpsons panel featured a brief and bizarre cameo from Star Wars legend Carrie Fisher.
