It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia executive producer and star Glenn Howerton revealed during a recent interview that Season 10 will be the show's final season. Here's what the actor had to say about closing down Paddy's pub after 10 years.
"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. We spend a lot of time trying to find new lines to cross. We're not trying to offend people or gross them out, but we're looking to surprise them. I think we're proud of what we've done so far, so it's time to stop. I'm sure there are already a few people who are like 'Jesus Christ is that show still on? Go away.'"
When asked why the show has never received an Emmy nomination, the actor revealed that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are such big fans of the show, that they came on and wrote an episode.
"I don't know what it is man, because I meet enough people, well respected people in this business who are really big fans of our show. I'm always blown away by it. Matthew Weiner, [who] created the show Mad Men, is a big watcher. He used to come to visit us a couple times on set. The Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are huge fans. So much so they wanted to write an episode - we've never let anyone else write an episode before, but we let them. So I don't know where the disconnect is. For some reason the Emmys, the Golden Globes, they act like we don't exist and I think it's kind of a shame. In a lot of ways, it's kind of our fault, because we never go to the parties, you know, the events you're supposed to. We've never really played the game."
When asked if the cast will ever attend the Emmy's, he said they may do so after the final season.
"I don't know, maybe in the 10th season, just because it's the last season and for the sake of the show, maybe we'll try to butter some people up. But then again part of me wants to be like, 'F--k you f--king motherf--kers, man.'"
