With the Season 15 premiere of “Family Guy” kicking off Sunday, it’s time to rundown all of the best guest appearances scheduled to happen this year. From the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry to actor Sean Penn, the latest season of the animated Fox show will feature voices of old and new faces that you’re definitely not going to want to miss.
1. Rob Gronkowski
Gronk will be the next New England Patriot to appear on “Family Guy,” following Tom Brady’s appearance during Season 4. The Patriots tight end will move into Quahog with his party bus but his wild lifestyle will prove too much for Peter (Seth MacFarlane), who then tries to drive Gronk out of town.
2. Steph Curry
Gronkowski won’t be the only athlete on “Family Guy” this season. NBA MVP Steph Curry will make an appearance as himself.
3. David Tennant
The “Doctor Who” actor will reprise his Doctor character for a flashback gag.
4. Sean Penn
While Penn hasn’t done any TV guest spots since 2004, the “Family Guy” fan will appear in an episode titled “Hot Shots,” which tackles the anti-vaccination movement. Penn will team up with Brian (MacFarlane) to save Stewie (MacFarlane) from not being vaccinated.
5. Mark-Paul Gosselaar
In a nod to a famous “Saved By the Bell” scene, Gosselaar will reprise his role as Zack Morris while Stewie will play the part of Elizabeth Berkley’s character, Jessie Spano.
6. Kyle Chandler
The “Bloodline” star will voice Chris’ (Seth Green) high school baseball coach. In the episode, Lois (Alex Borstein) and Peter discover that Chris is an excellent pitcher, but in typical Peter fashion, he begins betting on Chris’ games.
7. Frank Sinatra Jr.
Although he passed away in March, the frequent “Family Guy” guest star will make one more appearance on the show.
The bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers will become the target of Peter’s hate for people who don’t wear shirts. “Put on a shirt, you’re 50 years old!” Peter yells at Flea in an episode.
9. Amy Schumer
Schumer will guest star on three Fox shows this season: “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers.” The actress will be featured in the season premiere of “Family Guy.”
Season 15 of “Family Guy” kicks off on Fox at 9 p.m EDT. The first episode of the season, “The Boys In the Band,” will feature Stewie and Brian starting a children’s band that quickly becomes popular.
