Fisher first guest starred on the animated comedy as Angela, supervisor to Seth MacFarlane’s Peter Griffin at the brewery where he works, in 2005. She voiced the character in 20 episodes that have aired, most recently in an episode that premiered Dec. 4.
MacFarlane, who, in addition to voicing Peter Griffin is the creator and executive producer of Family Guy, wrote Tuesday on Twitter, “Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely.”
The premier date of the episodes are still unknown.
