Why is Family Guy not on Netflix?

We'll start with the United States, which formerly streamed almost the entire library of Family Guy episodes. Netflix acquired the television show as a part of a comprehensive overall output agreement with Fox.

When that agreement expired, Fox opted not to extend it and instead chose to make its titles exclusive to Hulu (where Family Guy is currently airing in the US permanently), a platform in which its parent corporation at the time had a vested interest. With a few exceptions, the Fox library mostly disappeared in 2018.

In September 2014, 11 new seasons were introduced on Netflix, with new seasons being added yearly while removing the older ones. Almost the complete library of Fox animated series was formerly available on Netflix.  

In the end, the show was removed in two parts.
Seasons 9-14 were removed on October 28, 2017, and other seasons were available until February 2018.

Family Guy is accessible in which regions?

Family Guy is still available to view on Netflix in many locations that, include

  • Canada,
  • Europe but not in the UK
  • Asian countries
  • South Africa.

The series' first season was added to Netflix Canada in 2016, and subsequent seasons were added yearly. Netflix has 140 episodes from seasons 12 through 18 available in all 23 territories as of September 2021.

Generally, new seasons will be available every September, but Netflix keeps removing the three seasons later, but season 19 and season 20 may not appear on Netflix. Before the start of 2022, Family Guy was still available on Netflix in German and Canadian libraries.
