It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has put to bed the debate about Dennis Reynolds’s appearance (or lack thereof) in season 13.
After more than a year of actor Glenn Howerton toying with fans by suggesting that they may have seen the last of his character, the cast finally came clean with fans at the TCA press tour on Friday (August 3).
The truth, according to the cast themselves, is that Dennis will be featured in a “majority” of the upcoming episodes, which will be arriving stateside on FXX next month (via Variety).
“We went through all sorts of ideas before we knew that Glenn was coming back,” Rob McElhenney (aka Mac) told reporters. “He’s in pretty much every episode.”
Here’s how FXX is describing the new season: “Dennis takes on the new role of father in North Dakota…Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history – an Eagles Super Bowl victory.”
It’s Always Sunny will also have an all-female reboot of a past episode as another clever way to accommodate Howerton’s inability to be around full-time.
Howerton is currently splitting his time between It’s Always Sunny and the network sitcom A.P. Bio, which was renewed by NBC back in May.
Earlier this year, Charlie Day said that the It’s Always Sunny crew are hoping to keep going at least through season 15 in order to break the record for longest-running live-action comedy series on US TV.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns on September 5 on FXX in the US. Netflix carries the show in the UK.
