Co-creator Rob McElhenney has previously indicated that the show will keep existing as long as fans’ enthusiasm remains intact.
“It takes us about five months to make a season of Sunny. We have that period of our lives carved. We’re going to keep doing it forever if people keep watching,” he said in January during a press tour, according to Deadline.
FX unveiled its programming slate last year and revealed that Atlanta, Fargo, American Horror Story, Archer and Dave were all getting new seasons.
