Family Guy is finally going to address the sexuality of Stewie in an upcoming episode featuring Sir Ian McEllen as a guest star. And the show’s executive producer Rich Appel confirmed that the character – who has frequently been rumored to be gay – will finally open up about who he is. Appel said: “It’s just a two-character episode with Stewie in his therapist’s [voiced by no one rather than Sir Ian] office for the first time. It’s a wonderful episode, and Seth’s performance is spectacular. They delve into all sorts of things you would think would come up in a therapy session with a boy like Stewie”. Being asked about whether the issue of sexuality will be directly discussed the producer gave an affirmative answer. The episode, titled ‘Send in Stewie, Please’, will air on March 11. It’s not the first time the show has toyed with Stewie coming out.
