“Family Guy” fans can rest a bit easier. It looks like Brian the dog will be coming back, one way or the other.

The Fox comedy plans to bring back the beloved talking dog on Dec. 15, but how he will come back after dying on Nov. 24 is unknown, reports Entertainment Weekly.

The episode titled, ”Christmas Guy,” states that “Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas.” Wonder what that one and only thing could be?

Fans were up in arms after the show killed off Brian, and about two weeks later a change.org petition to bring back the beloved furry friend has more than 128,000 supporters. There’s no reported connection between the outrage and the decision to bring Brian back.

But EW adds that the dog will continue to play a role in the show, citing a Maya Rudolph episode set to air next fall, where Brian takes up jogging to impress Rudolph’s character.

After Brian’s death, E! News spoke with “Family Guy” executive producer Steve Callaghan to find out why kill off this show staple.
