It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been on for 11 seasons. It’s TV royalty at this point, and Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito can do whatever they want, whether that’s stage an elaborate parody of 1980s skiing comedies (with the year’s best sex scene) or go to Hell. They’ve showed no signs of slowing down, which is a good thing, because FXX announced today that It’s Always Sunny has been renewed for a record-breaking seasons 13 and 14 (season 12 was already announced).
According to a press release:
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.”
Can you imagine a world without It’s Always Sunny in it?
And yet, still no Emmys.
