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.
