A beloved character is coming back to television.

"Entertainment Weekly" reports Brian the dog will be returning to "Family Guy" on December 15th.

Fans of the Fox comedy were outraged when the popular talking dog was killed, prompting a change.org petition that gathered more than 128-thousand supporters.

Just how Brian will be reunited with the Griffin family is unknown.  The episode synopsis only says that "Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas."
