It's Always Sunny Renewed

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Renewed for Seasons 13 and 14 at FXX

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is thisclose to raining on Ozzie and Harriet’s parade.

FXX has renewed It’s Always Sunny for Seasons 13 and 14, which means the comedy will tie The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series in television history (which ran for 14 seasons).

The sitcom’s 12th season is set to 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 [stars/EPs] Rob [McElhenney], Charlie [Day] and Glenn [Howerton] brought it to FX and will go down in TV history as one of the most loved and enduring comedies,” said Nick Grad, co-president of FX Networks and FX Productions, in a statement. “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.”

Per the network, since crossing over to FXX from sister cabler FX in 2013, It’s Always Sunny has seen its ratings climb 17 percent in the 18-49 demo and 24 percent among total viewers.

    I’m so happy to see this. They continue to bring the funny even now.

    In terms of number os episodes though It’s Always Sunny isn’t even close to the 425(!!!) episodes Ozzie and Harriet had.

    • Will says:

      Exactly, so technically it’s not tying for the record. No where even close.

      Also, isn’t Dee attached to some other show now (or pilot)?

      • Steven says:

        She is, but it’s for Fox and the productions schedules won’t overlap so she plans on doing both for the time being.

      • Brian says:

        It’s the ‘Longest Running’ not ‘Most episodes’ which is likely based on the years it was on the air. I am glad Sunny has less episodes a season because it has allowed them to keep the show fresh for a lot longer. Nice they are getting a few more seasons out of it.

    I never want this show to end. However, the day isn’t over yet. This better be legit! ;)

    This is one of my favorites shows, ever, so I’m very excited. This season was a big hit or miss but they have those from time to time so I’m hopefully it will only get better.

    Hell yeah!!!

    LOVE MY SUNNY! happy.

    meanwhile — season counts are one thing
    but episode counts are another

    seasons used to be what — 30 eps back then?
    now these cable seasons are what — 10?

    Always Sunny Forever!!!!!

    This news made me wish “The Big Bang Theory” (which premiered two years after “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) would go to a 14th season, also. One has to wonder if “IASiP”‘s season 14 will be the last for that show? “IASiP” already beat “Two and a Half Men”‘s run length. If this two-season renewal means getting away from those animated shows that already ran that long, then I’d be fine with this renewal either way. We’ll likely see both “IASiP” and “TBBT” air original episodes in 2020.

  10. Joey Padron says:

    Great news! Hope Man Seeking Woman gets renewed soon. It’s a good show.

  11. Sadly, I only “found” this show during the fifth or sixth season. One item on my bucket list is to go back and watch those episodes from the early years. I love the glee and joy that the cast brings to playing the most awful people in Philadelphia, or anywhere for that matter.

  12. Thank baby Jesus. Being Frank had to be one of my favorite episode ever using the First-Person perspective. I cannot wait to see what they come up with for 12-14.

    Always sunny is the only show worth watching over and over

    If all the people who do not think Always Sunny is the best show ever were killed off than the world would be a better place.
