It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is one step closer to becoming the longest-running live-action sitcom of all time. The FX series tied with ABC’s The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet with its recently concluded fourteenth season, and it could be about to set a new record.
Deadline reports that FX boss John Landgraf revealed that “We’re actively talking to them about more.” While it is unclear if we could be looking at a multi-season pick-up or just one more run, I think it’s a safe bet that a record-breaking fifteenth season will happen.
As hard as it is to believe, The Gang first burst onto our screens all the way back in 2005, created by Rob McElhenney (and developed with fellow co-star Glenn Howerton), Sunny has remained a staple on FX, it was moved to its sister channel FXX back in 2013 for its ninth season. That’s only relevant to fans in the US as Sunny found a legion of fans worldwide thanks to Netflix. McElhenney, Howerton, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito have all said they’d be happy to keep going. We’ve said goodbye to plenty of long-running TV shows over the last twelve months (Arrow, Modern Family and Supernatural all end this year), and I’m not ready to say goodbye to Paddy’s Pub yet.
Meanwhile, the latest trailer for Rob McElhenney’s new show for Apple TV+, Mythic Quest, recently landed online which you can check out right here. Season 14 of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia will be available to UK fans via Netflix on January 19th.
