Seth MacFarlane fans face an extended wait for his new The Flintstones reboot after the series was put on hold.
The animated show has been shelved while the Family Guy creator works on other projects, including his cartoons American Dad! and The Cleveland Show as well as his sci-fi documentary series Cosmos A Space-Time Odyssey.
MacFarlane is also completing work on his feature-length directorial debut Ted, due to hit theatres this summer (Jul12).
The Flintstones revamp was set to debut next year (13) but Fox network bosses have not confirmed when production will resume, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
