A new comedy from ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ stars Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney is on its way

It'll be set in a video game development studio

A new comedy from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney is on its way after Apple gave a straight-to-series order.

The series is set in a video game development studio and the scripted episodes are reported to be half an hour long. Both Day and McElhenney will also star in the series as well as serving as writers and executive producers.

The pair have collaborated as writers since It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – a show which McElhenney co-created with both he and Day starring and serving as executive producers. There’s currently no news of a premiere date for the new comedy.


Meanwhile, the thirteenth season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will air in September.

Back in May, Day revealed that he and his co-stars are aiming for a record-breaking 15 seasons of the show.

“You definitely get Season 13, which we’re making right now, and Season 14, which we’re contracted to do, and then beyond that, it’ll be up to FX,” he told TheWrap. “But I think 15 is the record for a comedy, so I imagine we’ll all want to hold the record for the longest-running comedy in America. Fifteen would be the record for the longest live-action comedy, so we’ll probably try and break that record if we can.”

Last month, the gang announced a brand new mobile game called ‘It’s Always Sunny: The Gang Goes Mobile​’.

It’s created by FoxNext Games and East Side Games and allows fans to play as any of the Paddy’s Pub gang: Mac, Dennis, Charlie, Dee or Frank.


The aim of the game is to partake in a host of terribly executed moneymaking schemes, where you’ll be able to unlock ill-fated stratagems and fan-favorite characters from the series.

It’s also been reported that storylines and fan-favourite moments from the show will pop up in the game.
