Back in April, FXX placed a 10 episode order for an as-yet-untitled project from Tracy Morgan and the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia crew. Slated for filming to begin in August, the show was scheduled for a January 2015 premiere—a set of dates that have been called into question since Morgan’s recent accident. 

Fans worried that, in the wake of his accident, Morgan’s show would be canceled or postponed by the network. FX has since addressed the accident and how it will effect the show’s development, saying that “his show will be waiting for him” once he’s recovered. 

The full statement is below:

“The only thing we are concerned with is the health and recovery of Tracy Morgan and the victims of this tragic accident. We will support Tracy and his family in every way possible throughout his recovery. At the point when Tracy has recovered and decides that he is ready to go back to work, his show will be waiting for him. Right now our thoughts and prayers remain with Tracy, the other victims of the accident, and their families."
