Kitten mittens aren’t the only thing you’ll be smitten by. FXX has picked up Always Sunny for two more seasons (11 and 12), meaning the show would run until at least 2017.
Now, we just have to wait years for them to come around. Creators and star actors Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, and Rob McElhenney will also be expanding their roles in the production and development of the show.
The new deal makes Always Sunny one of the longest-running live-action comedies in TV history. It has already become the longest-running live-action comedy series in cable TV history, since it started in 2005.
FX has also granted the Howerton, Day and McElhenney plenty of opportunities within the network. They’ve been writing (along with New Girl writer Luvh Rakhe) a 10-episode Tracy Morgan series. The have also apparently been handed a “blank check” to create a pilot for another FX show. In addition, they have a commitment to write at least three more comedy scripts.
Sounds like a good deal to me. And if there are going to be multiple shows on FX written by those three, then I think I found my new favorite network.
