DAYMAN – Turns out, Charlie Day and the gang are looking to recreate the episode’s magic with yet another It’s Always Sunny musical episode.
Speaking to Red Carpet Roxy (via Uproxx), Day said of the next season: “It’s a funny year. You can expect to see some of the UFC, you can expect to see an entire musical episode, guest starring from Scott Bakula, you can expect to see us at a water park, you can expect a very funny season.”
When you think of long running TV shows, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is almost an anomaly. Most shows that go beyond five or six season tend to drag along, with diehard fans defending the later seasons against fans who just want to see the show put out of it’s misery. It’s Always Sunny, on the other hand, has only gotten better with age, and last season was one of it’s strongest efforts during their 11 year run. According to a recent Charlie Day, interview, season 12 could possibly be even better. In probably the most random sentence of all time, Day explains that season 12 will feature ” the UFC, a musical episode, an episode guest starring Scott Bakula and an episode at a water park”. That sentence is going to make season 12 insane and can’t miss, but the part most people are focusing on is the musical episode. One of the best Sunny episodes of all time was a musical episode, season 4’s ‘Nightman Cometh’. That episode was co-written by Day, Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney, so giving those three another crack at a musical is something I’m very interested in. The gang has been good so through 11 seasons, and I can’t wait for what it shaping up to be an amazing season 12.
Nice to see Seth’s friends come back for his farewell episode. The Weekend Update desk will never be the same, but sometimes peacocks have to spread their feathers and fly away. We’ll see how it works out on March 1st when Colin Jost takes over.
