One of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s stars, creators, producers Glenn Howerton (he plays Dennis) confirmed the bittersweetness talked about the show’s future in a recent interview for Rolling Stone.

“There’s a certain point where you wear out your welcome and we don’t want to do that,” Howerton says. “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.’”

Season nine, which has wrapped filming already, is set to begin on Sept. 4 and will air on FX’s new all-comedy cable imprint FXX. It’ll join the likes of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, The League and Legit on FXX.

    This is literally yesterday’s news. Howerton has said that he was misquoted, and that the show is contracted for a 10th season, but could continue beyond that, as reported this morning on Splitsider.
