The sun will continue to shine on the FXX Network.
The FX offshoot confirmed Friday that it has ordered an additional two seasons of signature comedy “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Insofar as “Sunny” had already been confirmed for a tenth season, the deal will take the show through a twelfth.
Both seasons will consist of ten episodes.
“Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton are three of the most talented comedy writers and producers in our business, not to mention very gifted actors,” said FX’s Nick Grad. “This deal is a testament to their skill, intelligence and work ethic, which combined to earn them one of the best overall deals in TV. Not bad for three guys who shot a pilot 10 years ago for $200 and a few pizzas.”
The new deal also includes a straight-to-series order for a Tracy Morgan sitcom that the trio will produce and run.
