Say what you will about Family Guy, but the fact that it’s still airing after 21 seasons is a feat in itself.
Unfortunately, we have bad news for those of you who want to unblock all of Family Guy on Netflix, as there are only seven seasons left on the platform.
As of August 2021, seasons 9 through 11 have left Netflix; nearly a decade after season 11 first started airing.
You can still watch seasons 12 to 18 of the Griffins’ misadventures, though. And if the show isn’t available in your area at all, you can always use a VPN to get around those pesky geo-restrictions.
Visit the link above for several reliable VPN providers that are guaranteed to unblock Family Guy and others.
Scroll on for details about how all this works, and how to stay up-to-date about where all your favorite shows are streaming.
How to Unblock Family Guy Seasons 12-18
As mentioned, using a VPN will help you get around the annoying geo-blocks imposed by Netflix. Well, technically media companies that license content to Netflix are to blame (Disney in this case).
Why have all the Family Guy seasons in one convenient place when they can sign for a better deal with local TV stations? Or better yet, keep all the profit to themselves by putting the show on Disney Plus?
Licensing deals aside, here’s how you can watch what’s currently left of Family Guy on Netflix:
- Sign up with a Netflix VPN provider (such as those linked at the start of the article).
- Download and install their app on the device(s) you want to stream on. Thankfully, most VPNs nowadays have apps for all major systems: Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android, you name it.
- Log in and connect to a VPN server from a country that has Family Guy on Netflix.
About that last step: if you visit the link in the beginning, StreamCatcher offers updated info on which Netflix libraries contain all your favorites.
At the time of writing, seasons 12 to 18 of Family Guy are available in several countries, including France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, and more.
Of course, this is likely to change in the near future. As mentioned, Family Guy seasons 9 to 11 were removed from Netflix Canada – so bookmark the StreamCatcher link to make finding shows much easier.
Can You Unblock Family Guy With a Free VPN?
Several songs will tell you that “the best things in life are free.” While that may be true to some extent, that’s not exactly the case with free VPNs.
How so? Well, even if you find one that hasn’t been blocked by Netflix, you still have to deal with:
- Slow loading times, as free providers throttle user bandwidth
- A small network of servers that may not have the shows you want to watch
- Data caps between 500 MB and 10 GB, that limit you to several episodes on Netflix at most
This doesn’t even take into account the fact that most free VPNs make money by selling user data to ad companies, or straight up injecting ads into your browser.
Not exactly as “free” as one might expect. And that’s not the worst of it. Researchers have detected malicious code in a huge portion of free Android VPNs, while other free providers managed to leak the data of 20 million users online.
Probably not worth all the trouble just to watch seven seasons of Family Guy. Especially when you consider that most sub-based VPNs include hassle-free 30+ day money-back guarantees so you can try them out at your own pace.
