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.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
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?
Two seasons ago, the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' gang went Oscar-baiting for their season 7 promos, while last year things took an anime turn. This time around, 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' celebrates its season 9 move to FXX with all the Swedish-language monochrome art house style you can drink!
We've been so busy covering the major (and ongoing) network TV stories of the past week that we almost didn't notice one of the more bizarre and intriguing nuggets of news to come out of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's upcoming ninth season. Specifically, it appears that 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss plucked their pens out of Westeros long enough to write an upcoming episode! Will Dee go from bird to Mother of Dragons? Find out inside!
Earlier in the year, we heard rumors that FX might look to spinoff its comedy properties into a separate network titled "FXX," to debut in September of this year. Now, as news pours out of the cable network's Upfront presentation, we've learned that FXX will indeed break off from FX and debut in 74 million homes this September, but will it be a comedy-central channel, or appeal to a broader demographic?
Through eight seasons of misadventures at Paddy's Pub, 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has long been the cornerstone of FX comedy at the increasingly popular cable network. Now, as the gang heads into a ninth season following a slightly truncated 10-episode outing, are we any closer to learning where the long-running comedy might end? Find out which 'Always Sunny' star has all-but-confirmed a tenth season inside!
A few months ago we were surprised and saddened to learn that acclaimed FX dramedy 'Louie' was to take a long hiatus while comedian Louis C.K. toured and developed new material, finally premiering its fourth season in 2014. New reports about FX's evolving structure however could mean that when 'Louie' returns in 2014, it may not return to FX at all, but rather a spin-off network! Find out if "FXX" is the new home of FX comedies inside!
Like a last call at Paddy's Pub, there are some moments spent with the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' gang that we hope never end. Still, with the most recent eighth season clocking in at no more than 10 episodes, could there be an imminent end to the misadventures of Mac, Charlie, Dennis, Sweet Dee and Frank on the horizon? Will the next season be the last for the 'Sunny' gang? New word from FX addresses the future of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!'
