Family Guy's creative team is scrambling, following massive public outcry over the death of Brian Griffin, a Fox source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

“They didn’t anticipate this much negative outcry over the death of Brian,” our source reveals. “And they didn’t initially have thoughts of doing a spin-off show, but now, those discussions have started ever so slightly. It’s nowhere [near] a lock, but a discussion has [happened.]”

BriansAnnouncement.com: The Truth About The Hoax Site

Many fans — ourselves included — got their hopes up Nov. 25 when a website, BriansAnnouncement.com, cryptically hinted that a special announcement would be made Dec. 6 at noon EST, regarding the future of the Griffin’s dearly departed pet.

Sadly, as our source explains, that website has no affiliation with Seth MacFarlane, the Fox network or 20th Century Fox.

“[We have] no idea what that is all about,” our source explains. “Someone might be pulling a fast one.”

Bummer! We were planning out countdown party and everything!

HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Fox and is awaiting comment.
