Yesterday, news broke that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creator and star, Glenn Howerton, told Rolling Stone in a new interview that the series was absolutely set to end after next season, because "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."
It's a fair enough reason for ending series, but we couldn't help but be extremely depressed at the prospect of no more Charlie Kelly in our lives. Luckily, it looks like we might have a little bit of hope at the end of the tunnel, or at least a single ray of light: According to Howerton on his Twitter, there was a misquote in the RS article, and the season may continue past ten seasons if the cast and producers sign on for more.
The tweets were as follows:
That was a misquote in Rolling Stone, y'all. We're signed on through 10 seasons, but may do more.— Glenn Howerton (@Glenn_Howerton) July 24, 2013
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.— Glenn Howerton (@Glenn_Howerton) July 24, 2013
Easy on RollingStone, you guys. It was an honest mistake.— Glenn Howerton (@Glenn_Howerton) July 24, 2013
So, basically, we don't know anything more than we did before the interview was published. Good news, in a way?
