FXX Renews ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’

FXX has renewed comedy It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia for its 13th and 14th seasons, the network announced Friday.

With the renewal seasons, the series, which stars Danny DeVito, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, will tie The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series in television history, according to network officials.

Season 12 of the comedy will premiere in early 2017, according to network officials.

“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,” said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Networks. “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.”
