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?
This past weekend's Comic-Con 2013 return of FX's 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' proved that the gang hasn't lost a step in 9 years, but the question inevitably remains over how long the cast will continue on with the acclaimed cult comedy. Previous assumptions had established that 'Always Sunny' season 10 (the second on FXX) might end up the last, but has series star Glenn Howerton finally confirmed it?
This coming Sunday will see the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' cast take the stage at Comic-Con 2013 to preview the new September season, and even screen an episode from the coming run, but why wait that long for a fresh trip to Paddy's Pub? The first clip from the new season has already arrived, and the latest scheme might look a bit familiar to longtime fans of the series.
Last year's Comic-Con saw FX offering somewhat of a reduced presence without 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' but given the upcoming spinoff network FXX, Comic-Con 2013 will herald the Paddy's Pub gang's glorious San Diego return. Joining 'Archer,' 'Wilfred' and 'Sons of Anarchy,' FX has announced its full slate of panels for the upcoming pop culture pilgrimage.
A few weeks ago we started to see the promotional campaign for 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' begin to roll out, trading up the Oscar campaign and anime renditions of the previous year for an incomprehensible, albeit hilarious Swedish art house campaign. Three clips were good, but get ready to watch the Paddy's pub gang get even weirder in nine new promos!
The ninth and potentially penultimate season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' won't arrive on FXX (yes, a spin-off) until some time in September, but we've already heard quite a bit about the gang's upcoming adventures. We hope Dee has a handle on her heart condition, because her dreamy favorite singer Josh Groban will be guesting in an upcoming episode!
Weeks ago we heard the unusual if exciting news that 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss had penned one of the upcoming episodes for 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' season 9, inviting a host of comparisons as to how the Paddy's Pub gang might tackle the world of Westeros. Now, series star Charlie Day has gone on record with the episode's plot, but is it the 'Game of Thrones' parody we'd hoped?
