It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Breaks Huge TV Record With Season 15 Renewal

The hit show It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is returning for its record-breaking 15th season

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for a record-breaking season 15. 

The announcement of the show's renewal was made by FX on Tuesday. This means that the series is now TV's longest-running live-action comedy, surpassing The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.

The show's star and creator Rob McElhenney is now busy at work writing the script for the record new season. Last week, in an interview with NME, McElhenney said that there are no plans to cancel the show anytime soon. He said:

"If people keep watching it and we keep having fun, why would we ever stop? It’s my dream job."

Back in January he also shared a similar sentiment during the TCA Winter press tour. He said that he intends on making the show forever if people continue to watch it.

"We’re going to keep doing it forever if people keep watching."

During his chat with NME, he said that the future episodes of the show will touch on life in the COVID-19 era.

"When we come back, don’t worry," he said. "We will address all this in the way only Sunny can."


It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia follows a group of friends who run an Irish pub and first premiered on FX in 2005. It stars Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. The 14th season ended in November 2019 but despite the renewal, no details have been given on when filming will begin.

If you have yet to see any episodes of the series, you can catch them all on Hulu.
