Despite no official word, it looks like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fans have at least one more season to look forward to, and Anger Management fans will need to set aside some serious screen time. FX spoke out during a TCA panel that It's Always Sunny is “very likely” to get another season, while the Charlie Sheen comeback show will steamroll through with approximately 45 episodes a year until its current commitment is filled.
Deadline reports that FX President John Landgraf basically promised a tenth season for It's Always Sunny and possibly another beyond that, stating “there will definitely be one more year, maybe two.” The comedy is the last of what Landgraf has called the “four cornerstones” of FX to still be on the air. The other three, The Shield, Rescue Me and Nip/Tuck have all finished out their respective runs.
Meanwhile, the network won’t have any trouble keeping its schedule full with a plan that includes airing about 45 episodes a year of Charlie Sheen’s successful new comedy, Anger Management, which was given a 90-episode order after a successful first season run last summer. The show will air every Thursday night for two years with no interruption--aside from major holidays or sports events. Charlie’s real-life father, Martin Sheen, will be joining the cast for the new episodes playing, of course, the leading man's dad.
While there’s no return date yet for It's Always Sunny, which is headed into Season 9, Anger Management is set to begin airing Season 2 episodes on January 17th. However, with the plan to barrel through the episodes all at once, it hardly feels like that show will have multiple seasons at all, but rather one long second run.
