It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia first premiered in 2005, and it appears the FXX series may continue into the 2020s.
Charlie Day (who plays Charlie and is an executive producer on the show) recently spoke with The Wrap, and suggested that the show will look to go 15 seasons. Season 12 of Always Sunny concluded in March 2017, with Season 13 set for 2019. Day explained how they’re “contracted to do” Season 14, and would like to try to catch the 15-season record for the longest live-action comedy.
“You definitely get Season 13, which we’re making right now, and Season 14, which we’re contracted to do, and then beyond that, it’ll be up to FX,” he said. “But I think 15 is the record for a comedy, so I imagine we’ll all want to hold the record for the longest-running comedy in America. Fifteen would be the record for the longest live-action comedy, so we’ll probably try and break that record if we can.”
And if you’ve seen Season 12 of Always Sunny, you’ve been wondering about the future of the character Dennis Reynolds, played by Glenn Howerton (now starring on NBC’s new series AP Bio). It’s also just hard to imagine the show going on without Dennis, and *especially* if we’re talking three more seasons.
Well, Day told The Wrap that fans “should feel hopeful that they’ll see some more Dennis.”
We asked Day if Dennis will return? “It’s top secret, I can’t say anything,” Day said. “But I can say that the fans should feel hopeful. The fans should feel hopeful that they’ll see some more Dennis … There’s been discussions.”
So, that certainly seems like a “yes.”
