It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been renewed for an eagerly-anticipated 15th season, meaning that it will be breaking records to become the longest-running live-action comedy series.

It was tying with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet with 14 seasons but the new announcement means that it's tipped over the edge to sit at the top.

The news comes after Rob McElhenney, co-creator and star on the show, said he wants to carry on making it 'forever' and added that the next two seasons are already being planned.

In a Q&A with NME, Rob was asked how long he thought the show, which he stars in with his wife Kaitlin Olson, could keep going.

He answered: "How many years do I have on this planet? I'll do it forever. If people keep watching it and we keep having fun, why would we ever stop? It's my dream job. I never understand why people leave shows. I don't. I never understand that.

"The show is what I dreamed of doing my entire life. I don't take it for granted. And if they keep paying me and the audience keeps watching it and I still love it... why would I ever stop?"


We've already had a little teaser that future episodes of It's Always Sunny will address the coronavirus pandemic in some way.

McElhenney, who has been working on a new series called Mythic Quest which revolves around a group of game developers, was asked what a quarantine episode would look like for It's Always Sunny.

As McElhenney has been writing new episodes while in quarantine, he promised: "When we come back, don't worry, we will address all this in the way only Sunny can!"

Mythic Quest has been created by McElhenney, Charlie Day and Megan Ganz. When he was asked where the new venture left It's Always Sunny, he replied: "Oh, Sunny very much still exists.

"We're still in active negotiations for season 15 and 16 and we're hoping that as soon as we get out of Mythic Quest season, we jump right into something new with Sunny..."

So that's good news for fans - it looks like Mac, Frank, Dennis, Sweet Dee and Charlie aren't going anywhere any time soon.
