It looks like we could (possibly) be saying goodbye to Dennis Reynolds on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Although nothing has been concretely confirmed, actor Glenn Howerton – who has played the character for 12 seasons – has hinted that at the idea of leaving the show.

"So… it's a little complicated," the star told Uproxx. "I may seem a little bit evasive here, and I don't mean to. It's not entirely certain whether I am or am not.

"I might be. I might be, but I might not be.

"That really is the truth. Just to be clear, to dispel any potential weirdness, it has nothing to do with my relationship to anyone on the show or Rob or Charlie or anyone like that. It's partially a creative and personal decision.

"We may be taking an extended hiatus between season 12 and season 13. So I'm certainly staying open to the possibility of doing more, but there is a possibility that I will not."

The show was left on a cliffhanger at the end of season 12, with Dennis saying he was done with the Gang and the whole city altogether.

Since that interview hit the web, the star has also been announced (via Variety) to be joining the cast of new NBC sitcom AP Bio alongside Patton Oswalt.

If he is going leaving Philadelphia, it does not seem to be on bad terms. Talking about his time on the show, Howerton is full of positivity.

"It's been the greatest joy, honour of my life up to this point, to have been a part of this show."
