"The Cleveland Show" returns for its second season on Sunday (Sept. 26), but the animated comedy's long-term future is already secure. 
 
Not only has the series already received a back-nine order for this season, but "The Cleveland Show" has been picked up for a full third season.
 
I caught up with series co-creator, executive producer and lead vocal actor Mike Henry last week to discuss the process of escaping the "Family Guy" shadow, writing hip-hop for Kayne West and some of the big-name guest stars coming up this season.
 
It's kinda a serious chat with a funny guy, but don't worry... There are a few voices thrown in just for kicks.
