Shortly after its cable premiere, the show was renewed for a 22-episode 12th season which premiered on January 25th, 2016.

Early in its run, ''American Dad!'' was viewed as a clone of ''Family Guy'', but it quickly outgrew this reputation and developed its own identity. It has accomplished this largely by emphasizing story and character development and not including most of ''Family Guy'''s trademark shticks, like the {{cutaway gag}}s, {{flashback twist}}s, {{big lipped alligator moment}}s, {{overly long gag}}s, and its excessive use of {{take that}}s (though the occasional one does occur), making it a show that even detractors of SethMacFarlane's works could enjoy. Initially, the show relied on caricatures of political personalities, as well as some of the more visible and controversial aspects of the right wing's policies and ideologies (although granted, usually the [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]] version of said policies) and was, in [=MacFarlane=]'s words, "...going to be the next ''AllInTheFamily''". Over time, however, as the characters' personalities began to be fleshed out, the show became less and less political in nature, to the point where only a small portion of the episodes featured politics as an active theme (curiously, as this was taking place, ''Family Guy'' was steadily becoming ''more'' political).
