Stewie’s sexuality will finally be addressed on “Family Guy.”
Executive producer Rich Appel revealed to TVLine that Stewie’s sexuality will be discussed in an upcoming episode where Stewie has a therapy session. Out actor Sir Ian McKellen will guest-star as Stewie’s therapist.
“It’s just a two-character episode with Stewie in his therapist’s office for the first time,” Appel says. “It’s a wonderful episode, and Seth [MacFarlane]’s performance is spectacular.They delve into all sorts of things you would think would come up in a therapy session with a boy like Stewie.”
He adds, “When Stewie’s with his therapist, they pretty immediately address questions of sexuality. The episode covers that, and then goes to deeper issues for Stewie.”
Stewie’s sexuality has been hinted at over the course of the show but never directly mentioned. It’s still unclear how direct the upcoming episode will be about Stewie’s sexuality.
The episode is expected to air in March.
