Family Guy is set to reveal the sexuality of tearaway baby Stewie in a brand new episode next month.

The dysfunctional animation entertains viewers with zany parodies and characters such as Stewie and the family’s talking dog, Brian.

The hyper-intelligent, talking toddler often questions morality, life and his sexual identity among a myriad of subjects.

Favourite episodes feature the toddler becoming addicted to Steroids, falling in love and countless attempts to take over the world.

However, Stewie will ponder his sexuality and other issues with his therapist, played by guest star Sir Ian McKellen.

Speaking to TVLine, executive producer Rich Appel revealed more about the special episode, which concentrates on the little boy’s visit to his therapist.

‘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,’ he revealed.

The new episode features in Season 16 of the animation series and airs on 11 March on FOX.
