  • I hope this doesn’t mean It’s Always Sunny is gone :(

    • Not at all! Sunny has already been renewed for S10, and S9 will start airing soon. Guessing this is a hiatus project. :)

      Very excited about this news!

  • Pastor Casey FTW. Knowing the show, they’ll probably make him unredeemable like they did with Josh. Oh, how I miss Josh and Mindy’s chemistry.

    • Josh was terrible. The actor’s likable, but Josh the character is a jerk and they didn’t have the chemistry of a couple that should be together. He wasn’t made unredeemable. He was bad news for awhile.

  • This guy looks adorable, but this makes me nervous about Mindy’s relationship with Pastor Casey. I like him!

  • I love love love this show, but I can’t stand Pastor Casey – can’t wait to see Mindy rebound from that doomed-from-the-start sucktacular relationship.
