In an upcoming Family Guy episode airing next month, the issue of Stewie’s sexuality will finally be addressed when the fey, mother-hating one-year old sees a therapist played by guest star Sir Ian McKellen.
Says the show’s executive producer Rich Appel to TVLine: “
“It’s just a two-character episode with Stewie in his therapist’s 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.
“When Stewie’s with his therapist, they pretty immediately address questions of sexuality. The episode covers that, and then goes to deeper issues for Stewie.
Of course Family Guy has toyed with the notion of Stewie being gay for years (decades!) but has yet to offer a definitive answer. Then again, he’s ONE so I don’t know how important labeling him really is.
The episode, titled ‘Send in Stewie, Please’, will air on March 11.
