The late, great Carrie Fisher will appear in two future episodes of Family Guy, Entertainment Tonight has confirmed.
Fisher, who tragically passed away two days ago after suffering a heart attack on December 23, had completed performances for two installments of Fox’s hit animated comedy just prior to her passing. Details of when each episode will premiere are yet to be revealed, but we’ll be keeping you right up-to-date nonetheless.
This is by no means the first time that Carrie Fisher has featured on Family Guy, after voicing the character of Angela, Peter Griffin’s supervisor at the brewery, back in 2005. In those intervening years, the Star Wars icon has played the part an additional 20 times, most recently on January’s episodes of Seth MacFarlane’s biting sitcom. In commemorating the life and legacy of Carrie Fisher, the show’s creator – who also lends his voice to scores of Family Guy characters – took to Twitter to express his condolences.
Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely.

Details of Carrie Fisher’s final appearance on Family Guy are being kept under wraps at the moment, but we’ll keep you posted as this story develops. Elsewhere, the actress’ legacy will live on through Star Wars: Episode VIII, after it was confirmed that the she’d completed filming for a relatively large role in Rian Johnson’s 2017 sequel before her untimely death. Expect that one to release on December 15, 2017.
