Charlie Day confirmed this week that he is currently writing season 13 of the popular FXX show, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
While speaking with Screenrant about his upcoming film Pacific Rim Uprising, Day confirmed that writing has begun for the next season of It’s Always Sunny. Saying, “I’m writing it right now and we’ve got some hilarious episodes in the works and I guarantee another year of Sunny that is familiar with the last 12 years.”
This news isn’t surprising as the show has already been renewed for a 13th and 14th season. However, the show has been on hiatus since early 2017, allowing the stars to pursue other projects. Most notably, Glenn Howerton and Kaitlin Olsen are starring in their own shows, A.P. Bio and The Mick, respectively. Olsen has already committed to reprising her role as Dee in Sunny but Howerton has yet to do the same. With his character Dennis given a possible exit at the end of season 12, Howerton has yet to confirm his return for future seasons. This could signal a major dynamic shift in the ensemble for future seasons.
However, with most of “The Gang” set to return and Day continuing to write, it’s likely the show won’t miss a beat when it does return, likely sometime in 2019.
