It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia could continue past season 14


It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is likely to go past season 14. Also, show creators Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney have future projects!

With its epic season finale and strong approval ratings, It‘s Always Sunny in Philadelphia seems to still be going strong. According to FX CEO John Landgraf:

"“As long as we can come to business terms that fit both our needs and they can continue to make episodes as good as they have been making, there is a good chance it may go past Season 14.”"

After the series completes season 14, it will be tied with ABC’s The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet‘as the longest-running live-action comedy series. By this point, surely even non-fans will think they might as well go for season 15 and break the tie. It’s sort of a no-brainer, isn’t it? Still, much like with The Simpsons, any show that’s been on a long time will gain its detractors. Nevertheless, the 13th season has a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 100% (which not every show achieves), and was summed up as “topical, triumphant, and toxic in the best way.”

Where will the gang go next?

When It’s Always Sunny’s 13th season began, star Glenn Howerton’s future on the show was in doubt (due to his starring role in NBC’s A.P. Bio, where he plays a high school advanced placement biology teacher). However, he did appear in 6 of 10 episodes, still figuring heavily into the show’s flow. While we don’t know which taboos season 14 will explore, it’s likely much of the writing will be handled by people that McElhenney & co. trust, and not so much the stars.  After all, only one season 13 episode was co-written by Rob McElhenney & Charlie Day, and Howerton had no writing credits.

It’s not like the creators aren’t busy, though. In addition to their long-running breakout hit, it’s been announced that Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney have finalized casting for a comedy series at Apple called Hero Quest. Interestingly, this comedy will be about a video game development studio. Though the Hero Quest project announcement may concern some about It’s Always Sunny‘s future, it seems these guys can juggle a few projects simultaneously. Hero Quest is set to star McElhenney himself, along with Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, Imani Hakim, Ashly Burch, Danny Pudi, and Charlotte Nicado. It will also have David Hornsby, known for playing “Rickety Cricket” on It’s Always Sunny, as well as writing on many episodes.

On top of that, Charlie Day already executive produces The Cool Kids on FOX, which he occasionally directs and writes on as well. The Cool Kids is a comedy about senior citizens at the Shady Meadows Retirement Community, starring In Living Color‘s David Alan Grier, Martin Mull, Leslie Jordan and Vicki Lawrence. Although It’s Always Sunny will certainly end at some point, it seems its creators have more tricks up their sleeves.
