It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres it’s 9th season this fall on their new comedy channel FXX, September 4th at 10pm ET/PT. Then after season 10 next year, the gang will be saying “so long bitches” for good! In a not so stunning move Glenn Howerton has announced that the show doesn’t want to overstay it’s welcome so they’re going to end on their terms. Read more below from IGN:
“There’s a certain point where you wear out your welcome and we don’t want to do that,” the actor/writer/producer said. “We want to leave them wanting more. We spend a lot of time trying to find new lines to cross. We’re not trying to offend people or gross them out, but we’re looking to surprise them. I think we’re proud of what we’ve done so far, so it’s time to stop.”
I’m glad Howerton is saying it because in my opinion the show has become a bit stale, even though I’ll always love it. I long for the earlier seasons when all of the characters weren’t so over the top.
But in the show’s defense the subsequent seasons have been pretty entertaining. From Kitten “Mittons” to Dance Marathons and Project Bad Ass to Thundergun Express, the show will definitely be missed. It is better for it to end before the fans decide to stop watching. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is a great show to have leading the charge on the network’s newest efforts at gaining viewership with FXX. The network has triumphed time and again, and not only with comedies, but dramas like The Shield, Justified, Rescue Me, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story and Nip/Tuck just to name a few.
Once It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia goes away, comedies such as Archer, Louie, The League and Wilfred will have to pick up the slack, which they are more than capable of doing. As the show reaches closer to it’s inevitable conclusion, what are everyone’s favorite episodes with so many to choose from?
You know Grizzly Bomb will be doing a top ten best episodes once the show has it’s series finale.
