The network says it will air a one-hour series finale on Sunday, Sept. 13. The show premiered in 1997 and has aired for 13 seasons and more than 250 episodes, picking up an Emmy for best animated program along the way. Its 13 seasons trail only "The Simpsons" for animated prime-time longevity.

FOX had six episodes left of the show left on the shelf when the 2008-09 season ended. Last week at the TV critics summer press tour, FOX Entertainment president Kevin Reilly said the network had "no plans" to air the remaining episodes.

That position has now obviously changed a little bit, but there's no word on whether the other four will see the light of day, either on air or on DVD.

The final episodes will find Bobby (Pamela Adlon) asking Connie (Lauren Tom) to the homecoming dance and Hank (co-creator Mike Judge) dealing with the fallout after his mom marries a man she's only known for a few weeks.
