NewsEdit

On April 1, 2016 it was announced that FXX commissioned season 13 and season 14 of Sunny, tying it for the longest-running live action television comedy in American television history.[2]

In an interview published on March 8, 2017, Glenn Howerton stated that there may be an "extended hiatus" before season 13, and that he may not return to the show: "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."[3]

In an interview with TV Guide, Kaitlin Olson confirmed that the show will take an extended hiatus to accomodate the cast's other projects: "We ended up pushing our next season a year because we were all busy with separate projects this year. So at the end of this coming shooting season of The Mick I'll step right into Sunny after that."[4]

On April 7, 2018, Kailtin Olson posted the following to her Instagram account, next to a picture of a bird with Sweet Dee's head:

She also confirmed in an interview with The Wrap that Glenn Howerton will be back for at least a few episodes as Dennis: “I do know that Glenn Howerton is coming back for some episodes...I don’t know the specifics, but I do know how he’s being introduced back in, and it is absolutely hilarious.”[5]

The season will consist of 10 episodes[6], set to explore Sunny-verse characters. One episode is confirmed to be titled 'Mac Finds His Pride'.[7]
