‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Renewed for 2 More Seasons

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” has been renewed for a 13th and 14th season on cable network FXX.

With the renewal, “It’s Always Sunny” is set tie “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” which ran for 14 seasons, for the most seasons by a live-action television comedy. Season 11 of “It’s Always Sunny” finished in March. The previously announced 12th season is set to premiere in 2017.

“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 Grad. “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.”

Season 11 of “It’s Always Sunny” averaged averaged 1.1 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 1.4 million total viewers — up 8% and 13% from the previous season, respectively, according to Nielsen live-plus-seven ratings.

The series, created by Rob McElhenney, is produced by FX productions. McElhenney serves as executive producer with Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Michael Rotenberg, Nick Frenkel, Tom Lofaro, Scott Marder and David Hornsby. The series stars McElhenney, Howerton, Day, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito as the idiot owners of dive bar Paddy’s Pub in Philadelphia.

“It’s Always Sunny” premiered on FX in 2005. It moved to sister channel FXX for its ninth season in 2013.
