IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, FX
According to Deadline, at today's TCA winter press tour event, FX president John Landgraf spoke about the future of the network's iconic comedy IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA.
"There is a high likelihood for a 10th season," Landgraf said. "Whether it goes beyond that depends on whether the people who created the show want to go and whether the audience still wants to watch. But there will definitely be one more year, probably two."
That creator, who also stars, being Rob McElhenney. The show also features Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olsen, and Danny DeVito as the self-centered owners of Paddy's Irish Pub in Philadelphia who will do just about anything, no matter how reprehensible, in an attempt to better their own situation.
Serious issues such as racism, abortion, underage drinking, molestation, gun control, cancer and death somehow weave their way into the cockeyed universe of "The Gang." The characters are experts on every subject but actually possess expertise in nothing at all. They often use revisionist history to bolster their self-worth, which contrasts sharply with the true reality of their lives.
The series' eighth season began airing in October, and the ninth is tentatively set for a Fall 2013 premiere.
