News broke last summer that Fox was working on a Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode to be aired sometime in fall 2014. At Fox’s upfront presentation yesterday, entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly confirmed the news and revealed that the episode – called The Simpsons Guy – will be a full hour and is currently set to air sometime this September. The episode will feature the Griffins going on a road trip to Springfield; here’s the full description of the crossover special via EW:
They cross paths with Homer, who graciously greets his new “albino” visitors, and the two families become fast friends. Stewie is impressed with Bart and his assortment of pranks, Lisa befriends Meg and tries to figure out exactly what it is that she’s good at, and Marge and Lois put aside their housework in favor of some bonding. Meanwhile, Peter and Homer argue over which beer is better: Pawtucket or Duff.
