It keeps getting sunnier for “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” a series that has no intention of slowing down.

FX announced that the series will return for a record-making 15th season that will run through 2021.

The milestone achievement lands the half-hour sitcom in the history books as the longest-running live-action American sitcom, the network revealed per CNN.

It was previously tied with ABC’s “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” which aired in 1952 and ended after 14 seasons in 1966.

The series premiered in 2005 before moving to FXX during its ninth season.

It was the first comedy for FX, having previously been known for its scripted dramas like “Sons of Anarchy,” “The Americans,” “Fargo” and the “American Horror Story” franchise.

The news comes shortly after executive producer and star Rob McElhenney revealed writing on the upcoming season has begun, according to Deadline. It’s unclear when production on the new season will begin due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many TV show and film productions were halted as a result of the outbreak.

The series, about a group of friends who run an Irish pub in South Philadelphia, also stars Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito.
