Only a couple of weeks after Brian the dog was killed on an episode of 'Family Guy', there are reports he will be coming back.

Entertainment Weekly says that makers of the show plan to bring him back on December 15, but how he will come back from the dead is still unknown.

In the episode titled, “Christmas Guy,” Stewie devises a master plan to get the “only thing he wants for Christmas.”

Fans, including fans here in Rhode Island, have been outraged by Brian's death. A change.org petition to bring Brian back got more than 128,000 supporters.

“Family Guy” executive producer Steve Callaghan said of Brian's death, “This was an idea that got pitched in the writers' room and it sort
of caught fire, and we thought it could be a fun way to shake things
up.”
