FAMILY GUY: The family departs on a Yacht Rock cruise that doesn’t go as expected, on the “Yacht Rocky” season premiere episode of FAMILY GUY airing Sunday, Sept. 29 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. FAMILY GUY ™ and © 2019 TCFFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. CR: FOX

LY GUY has its new Cleveland Brown: Arif Zahir.

Zahir is no stranger to the FAMILY GUY world, either—he’s gotten millions of views on YouTube with his Cleveland impersonations.

“Firstly, I’m eternally grateful to have received this once in a lifetime opportunity,” Zahir said in a statement. “When I heard that Mike Henry was stepping down from the role of Cleveland Brown – my favorite cartoon character of all time – I was shocked and saddened, assuming we’d never see him again.”

“To Mike Henry, Rich Appel, Alec Sulkin and Seth MacFarlane, thank you for this incredible gift,” he continued. “And to the millions of fans who love this show, I promise not to let you down.”

Henry, who played Cleveland on FAMILY GUY and its spinoff THE CLEVELAND SHOW, stepped back from the role this summer as animated shows moved away from white performers portraying characters of color.

FAMILY GUY was recently renewed for seasons 19 and 20, and will celebrate episode 350 with its Sunday, September 27 episode.
