It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Better Things and The Weekly Renewed by FX and FXX, American Horror Story Spinoff Ordered

FX and FXX have renewed three of their series for additional seasons.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been a top performer for FXX despite a steep ratings decline this season. The show averaged 0.16 for its most recent season. Its renewal will make it the longest-running live-action sitcom in history, a record it was previously tied for with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Sunny debuted in 2005 on FX before making the move to FXX in 2013. Star, writer and producer Rob McElhenney had previously stated that scripts were being written for the fifteenth season, including a quarantine-themed episode. Alongside McElhenney, Always Sunny stars Kaitlin Olson, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton and Danny DeVito. This is a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.

Better Things hasn't been nearly as reliable for FX in the ratings department, averaging just 0.11 this season. However, it's been acclaimed and has received multiple Emmy nominations for series star/creator/writer/director/producer Pamela Adlon. Better Things will enter its fifth season next year, after premiering in 2016. It stars Adlon, Celia Imrie, Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood and Olivia Edward. This is a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.

The Weekly, FX's resident news docuseries from The New York Times, was one of the network's more modest performers. It drew attention for its special centering on NY Times' 2020 Democratic presidential campaign endorsements of Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren. A story featured prominently in the series also recently won a Pulitzer Prize. This is a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.

In addition to these renewals, FX has also officially ordered Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story spinoff, American Horror Stories. Like the parent show, it is an anthology, but will feature a new story every episode. The project was announced by Murphy two weeks ago. American Horror Story rates as FX's #1 series in the 18-49 ratings.
