The D.E.N.N.I.S. system finally pays off. As Always Sunny prepares to go before cameras for its thirteenth (!) season, cast confirms that Glenn Howerton will be back in his role as Dennis Reynolds – but for how long?
Is Glenn Howerton using the D.E.N.N.I.S. system on Always Sunny fans? After years demonstrating value and nurturing dependence, the departed FX star inspired hope of a potential Season 13 return, and now suggests over Twitter he might separate entirely.
It’s been some time since the Always Sunny in Philadelphia cast has updated on Season 13, let alone whether we should expect star Glenn Howerton’s return. The actor has since moved to NBC’s new A.P. Bio comedy, but won’t commit to an official Sunny exit just yet, and may borrow a page from Larry David for future seasons.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was bound to close up shop eventually, but the end got much more real with word that creator-star Glenn Howerton would take on outside projects. Now, star Charlie Day is optimistic Dennis will return in Season 13, but thinks the show should call it quits without him.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s future got surprisingly cloudy for a series renewed through two more years, as cast conflicts put its thirteenth season premiere in question. We may now know when Paddy’s Pub will finally re-open, however, as reports point toward a 2018 premiere.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia came under surprising scrutiny for a series renewed for two more seasons, once series star Glenn Howerton confirmed a potential departure. Now, NBC comedy A.P. Bio has been picked up to series, likely guaranteeing Dennis will be absent from Paddy’s Pub.
The Always Sunny gang managed to power through a solid twelve years on FX and FXX, so it wasn’t any surprise star Glenn Howerton opted for a small break before the next two. That said, we may be bereft of Sunny all through 2018, as star Kaitlin Olson confirms the Paddy’s Pub gang will take a pre-Season 13 hiatus.
FXX’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has impressively never fatigued to the point of cancellation, even extending beyond Season 12 to a record-setting 13 and 14. The cast has even managed to squeeze in additional projects without disrupting the series, but the Season 12 exit of Dennis may be more permanent for Glenn Howerton than we expected.
After twelve years on the air, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia knows how to play its well-honed characterizations with a little topical flair. And if we’re going to look into the whole “Dennis Reynolds is a murderer” thing, you can bet that the resurgence of true crime documentaries was the way to go, as seen in Season 12's “Making Dennis Reynolds a Murderer” trailer.
