‘Always Sunny’ gang is sticking around

Break out the wine in a can, The Gang has good news—and we’ll be celebrating with them about it for at least the next couple years. That’s right, FXX has picked up It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia for not one, but two more seasons.

Thanks to the newly inked deal, It’s Always Sunny will see a Season 11 and 12, putting its run through at least 2017. Vulture calls the agreement a “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” type of deal, with creators Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, and Rob McElhenney expanding their roles in production and development.

That makes It’s Always Sunny not only one of the longest-running live-action comedies in TV history, but the longest-running live-action comedy in cable TV history. But, as if that wasn’t good enough, FX Productions has also included a slew of other creative opportunities for the Always Sunny guys into the deal. 

Not the least of which, of course, is the 10-episode Tracy Morgan series they’ll be creating alongside New Girl writer Luvh Rakhe. In addition, Howerton, Day, and McElhenney have been handed a "blank check" to create another pilot for FX, plus a commitment for a minimum of three more comedy scripts.

“Not bad for three guys who shot a pilot ten years ago for $200 and a few pizzas,” said FX programming co-chief Nick Grad in a statement.

So, please, fear not, Philadelphia—we’re going to be seeing the gang for a long time to come.
