Carrie Fisher Returns for Tonight’s ‘Family Guy’ – and Plants a Kiss on Peter
Carrie Fisher will not only return posthumously in next month’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” but also in two more episodes of Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.” Fisher, who died last December, had a recurring role as family patriarch Peter’s sexually-harassing boss, Angela, and on tonight’s episode she sticks it to Peter by firing him… three times. “She comes in dressed in this odd get-up that we’ve never seen her wear before, and says, ‘You’re relieved of your position,'” executive producer Steve Callaghan told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s like, who fires someone that way?

Family Guy Ep Previews Special Tribute to Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Michael Bay — Watch a Clip

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Family Guy executive producer Steve Callaghan has been discussing last month’s passing of Adam West, during which he revealed that the actor had already recorded his lines as Mayor Adam West for five more episodes of the animated comedy series prior to his death, and they will air this coming season.

“He’s such an integral part of the series that it never even occurred to us to take that out,” said Callaghan when asked if there’d been any discussion as to whether to pull the episodes. “I would almost feel like that was somehow not properly honoring him. I think the proper way to honor him is to keep the character in the show. There were two or three episodes where his character had been written in, but he hadn’t yet recorded those, so obviously we’ve made accommodations for that.
