Though 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has been on for nine seasons, the show has only once been nominated for an Emmy (a Primetime Emmy for "Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or a Variety Program" at that), and tonight's episode pokes fun at the show's lack of awards and at trying desperately to get an award.
'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is kicking off its ninth (but probably not final) season on the new Fox channel FXX, which means it's possible many thought they had their DVR's set to record this, but didn't reprogram their machines. Alas, this new channel may take some getting used to, but it takes no time to settle back into the antics of the 'Philly' crew in "The Gang Broke Dee."
Much as we love the recent 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' season 9 teasers that so artfully chronicle the September 4 move from FX to FXX, it was high time for some actual footage, no? Well, true to living, drinking, and snorting to excess, the gang has returned with not one, but 10 Flip-adelphian new promos for the new season starting in September!
Whether or not the gang from 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' ends up holding to series star Glenn Howerton's earlier words that the show would come to a close with season 10, the upcoming ninth season is nearly ready to have its layers peeled back. The full hi-res poster for the Paddy's Pub gang's arthouse phase has arrived, and we can't decide if we're turned on or hungry.
We'd previously heard 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star Glenn Howerton talking about next year's tenth season as a definitive end to the longrunning FX series, though Howerton soon recanted his words. Now, the entire cast and crew have chimed in to agree they see potential for an even longer run, spoofing their many award snubs in the process with an upcoming episode.
While much of the news from 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' this past week stemmed from star/writer Glenn Howerton's claims that season 10 would be the last we see of the Paddy's Pub gang, as well as Howerton's subsequent denial, we mustn't forget the season at hand debuting September 4 on FXX! So, what superheroic shenanigans will the gang get into this year, and what fan-favorite characters will return?
Though no mention of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia''s ultimate end arose during the recent Comic-Con 2013 panel, few fans of the FX comedy series were surprised to hear star Glenn Howerton's recent interview about ending the show with its 10th season in 2014. Now, Howerton has begun singing a different tune with press, so could Dennis, Mac, Charlie, Dee and Frank live past season 10 after all?
