When the new season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” begins on the new FXX network, there’s going to be some exciting things afoot. The show’s creators have been sharing bits and pieces from the set as the season is taped, but the big news came May 14.
Rob McElhenney, the creator of the show who also plays Mac, tweeted a photo of himself with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the showrunners on “Game of Thrones.” With the photo was a simple message, “If ur wondering whether or not Benioff and Weiss wrote an episode of Sunny this year the answer is, of course, yes.”
What hasn’t been revealed is what the episode will be about. “It’s Always Sunny” has tackled a bunch of issues, from professional wrestling to cannibalism, but what would the “Game of Thrones” mindset bring to the show? Sword fights and dragons, maybe?
As for what else to expect from the ninth season of the show, which begins in the Fall, at least one of the characters paints themselves brown for some reason, then plays basketball. So there’s that.
