IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA Renewed For Historic 14th Season
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has had a few rough patches here and there, but overall, it's been a tremendous run for the comedy series so far. They just wrapped up their eleventh season, have already been renewed for season twelve, and today FXX announced that the show has been renewed for a thirteenth and a record-tying fourteenth season:
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for seasons 13 and 14 on FXX, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. With season 14, Sunny will tie The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series in television history. The previously announced season 12 will premiere in early 2017.
“If anyone doubts the power of a camcorder and a dream, just look at It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which was a DIY backyard pilot when Rob, Charlie, and Glenn brought it to FX and will go down in TV history as one of the most loved and enduring comedies,” said Grad. “Few shows make it this far or have such devoted fans, and we owe it all to the creative vision and great humor of the creators and cast who keep Sunny fresh and inventive every season.”
It's crazy that what started out as such a small show has become a cultural landmark. The show has given us so many classic episodes already — The Nightman Cometh, Chardee MacDennis, The D.E.N.N.I.S. System, The Storm of the Century, Thundergun Express, Charlie Work, the list goes on — and I'm super excited that both this show and South Park are going to be sticking around for at least a few more years. Life just won't be the same when Dennis, Dee, Frank, Mac, and Charlie aren't screaming at each other on my television every week.
