Glenn Howerton hints at departure from ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’

"I love these guys and we have an absolute blast working together."

Glenn Howerton has hinted that he might not be returning for Season 13 of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, amid reports that his busy schedule could stop him from reprising the role of Dennis Reynolds.

The long-running FXX comedy concluded its twelfth season in March, with its final episode leaving on a cliffhanger as Dennis announced that he is “leaving” Philadelphia and the ‘gang’ to “go be a dad”.

This was followed by reports that Always Sunny was going on hiatus and Howerton could be taking a break from the show to pursue his new NBC sitcom, AP Bio, along with a role in new Fox sitcom Cool Kids. 

Now, Howerton has hinted at his departure when a fan asked if he would be returning during a panel at the Vulture Festival in Las Vegas.

“Eh damn it”, Howerton said when asked about his return to the show.

““I will say this: All joking aside, I love these guys and we have an absolute blast working together. We’ll see.”

It’s Always Sunny co-creator Rob McElhenney also confirmed that the show will hopefully return in the later stages of 2018.

““We’re getting back to the writers’ room in February [2018]”, he said before later confirming an Autumn return.

When asked about Howerton’s future, he added: “We’ve got all sorts of surprises.”
