Yesterday, ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ fans were heartbroken when it was announced that the hit comedy series would be ending after its tenth season.
Rolling Stone reported that Glenn Howerton, series star and executive producer, revealed to the magazine that Season 10 would be the show’s last:
"Yes. There’s a certain point where you wear out your welcome and we don't want to do that. 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 sure there are already a few people who are like 'Jesus Christ is that show still on? Go away.'"
Well, Rolling Stone might want to recheck that interview, because according to Howerton, ‘It’s Always Sunny’ is not technically ending and there is potential for more seasons. He tweeted, “That was a misquote in Rolling Stone, y'all. We're signed on through 10 seasons, but may do more.”
Howerton continued on Twitter by posting, “It's a great article in Rolling Stone. I just think he misunderstood when I said we're only signed thru 10. We still might sign on for more. He added, "Easy on RollingStone, you guys. It was an honest mistake.”
So, it looks like fans can somewhat rejoice and hold out for more seasons.
‘It’s Always Sunny’ returns to FXX (FX’s youth and comedy-related sister channel) for Season 9 on Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 10 p.m. EST and will celebrate its 100th episode on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10 p.m. EST.
Fans can expect Season 10 to premiere fall of 2014.
