However, there's still a slight glimmer of hope that Brian might return from the dead around Christmastime... MAYBE.
Fans should check out the new website Brian's Announcement, but don't get too excited just yet...
The mysterious website provides a live countdown to when Brian will make a "special announcement" (on December 6, 2013, to be exact):
Unfortunately, this entire thing is just another hoax. Fox has nothing to do with it. In fact, 20th Century Fox Television just released this statement on Tuesday (Nov. 26):
“The producers have confirmed that the ‘special announcement from Brian’ website is a hoax and was not created by anyone connected to the show, studio or network."
Maybe Brian's death was a stunt set-up by the wise guy producers over at "Family Guy" - maybe Seth MacFarlene was just messing around and the martini-swinging pup will come back as a "Christmas miracle." Who knows... but what IS for certain is that this countdown is NOT real. Fans shouldn't expect anything once Dec. 6 rolls around.
