It is nearly impossible to describe It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The humor is almost a non-stop barrage of jokes, brought on by the crazy antics of stars Kaitlin Olson, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Danny DeVito. However, The Wrap reported that the thirteenth season of the dark comedy has been postponed for an entire year.
The postponement seems to be because of the actor’s schedules. Because of the close-knit emphasis on the main five characters, having a season without one or more of the actors would be an unwise choice. Kaitlin Olson, who divulged this new information, has recently completed work on her new show The Mick, which appears to be part of the reason for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s delay.
“We ended up pushing our next season a year because we were all busy with separate projects this year,” Olson clarified. “So at the end of this coming shooting season of The Mick I’ll step right into Sunny after that.”
And she’s not the only one balancing new shows with It’s Always Sunny. Glenn Howerton, who plays Olson’s brother on the series, is developing a new pilot called AP Bio for NBC. Lorne Michaels and Seth Meyers are executive producing the series. Howerton plays a former Ivy League professor who has been demoted to the unenviable task of teaching high school.
