‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ Approved For Two-Season Renewal, Making TV History

Eleven seasons and still going strong.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been approved for two more seasons on cable network FXX, after having eleven seasons under their belt.

The live-action sitcom had already been green-lit for its 12th season, with a now additional two-seasons approved. The show is officially one of the longest-running live-action sitcoms in television history.

Season 11 had just finished at the end of March, with knowledge that Season 12 would be out in 2017. After news of a two-season renewal, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is tied with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet which also ran for 14 seasons.

The show tells the story of five friends running Paddy’s Pub in South Philadelphia, and stars Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney and Danny DeVito.

Nick Grad, co-President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, said:

“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…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.”

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premiered on FX in 2005, moving to FXX in 2013. We can’t wait to see what the series has in store for seasons 12, 13 and 14.
