Stan's blissfully unaware wife, FRANCINE (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that allows her to turn a blind eye toward Stan's unabashed arrogance. Meanwhile, Stan constantly butts heads with his 18-year-old left-wing activist daughter, HAYLEY (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father's buttons whether it's by helping the homeless, demanding women's rights or supporting gun control. Hayley's 14-year-old brother is the geeky yet cocky STEVE (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing Dungeons & Dragons and obsessing about the opposite sex.
The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members. There's the sassy and sarcastic space alien, ROGER (Seth MacFarlane), who lives in the attic and loves to play dress-up; and KLAUS (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German guy who always throws in his two cents regardless of whether anyone is listening.
This screwball family full of radically different personalities is just trying to figure out how to love and trust one another in a bi-partisan world. And with a guy like Stan in charge of national security, it's guaranteed to be one hilarious ride.
In the upcoming season, the Smiths are back with more mischief and tomfoolery. In the season premiere, singer/music producer Cee Lo Green performs on the musical episode "Hot Water." Meanwhile, Roger travels to the Middle East to show his support for the troops, Stan gets a curse placed on him that causes him to age in reverse, and Hayley adopts a baby who turns out to be evil incarnate. The season's guest voice appearances include actor Patrick Stewart, Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, actress Anjelica Huston, BONES crime-solving duo David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alumnae Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan, actress/author Amy Sedaris ("Strangers With Candy") and comedienne/reality show star Kathy Griffin.
