'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Will Address COVID-19 in Future Episode
"When we come back, don't worry, we will address all this in the way only 'Sunny' can!"
Published May 24, 2020Creator and star of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rob McElhenney, has revealed plans to address the coronavirus pandemic in a future quarantine-related episode of the series.
In a new interview with NME, McElhenney shared that in the coming seasons of the show, the gang will likely take on yet another bout of quarantine.
"Well, we actually do have an episode called 'The Gang Gets Quarantined' where we quarantine ourselves in the bar," McElhenney recalled. "I think there's a big flu going around Philadelphia or something like that."
He added: "When we come back, don't worry, we will address all this in the way only Sunny can!"
As for when the series will return, like many productions, those decisions are very much up in the air.
"We're still in active negotiations for Season 15 and 16, and we're hoping that as soon as we get out of Mythic Quest season, we jump right into something new with Sunny."
Meanwhile, McElhenney has been hard at work with Mythic Quest, which also recently aired a quarantine episode that saw the entire cast and crew working remotely from various locations, with all footage for the show being shot on iPhones.
