It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is already making records with the upcoming Season 15, which will make it the longest-running live-action scripted sitcom ever–and now it’s going to break that record by at least four seasons. The show has been renewed through to Season 18, meaning we’ll be getting many more adventures from The Gang.
FX has announced that the low-budget, critically acclaimed sitcom, which began in 2005, will keep going for a while yet.

Co-creator Rob McElhenney took to Twitter to assure fans that the team still has plenty of ideas, and envisioned the show as a 36 season arc. and while his tweet might be tongue-in-cheek, with the show still very good 14 seasons in, there could be some grain of truth to it.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia also stars Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito. 154 episodes have aired in total so far.
This was just one of many announcements coming from FX today, including the news that Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley is working on a series based on Alien.
