FX Renews The League, Legit, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia; All Three Shows Will Move to Its New Sister Network, FXX

FX held its first-ever formal Upfront presentation in New York this morning, and boy was it a doozy. In addition to a Season 5 renewal for Justified, network president John Landgraf announced a trio of comedy pickups:

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which will debut its ninth season this fall, has been renewed for Season 10, guaranteeing that the show will be on the air through 2014. 

The League, which will debut its fifth season this fall, has been renewed for Season 6... guaranteeing that the show will also be on the air through 2014. 

And Legit, which is currently winding down its first season, has been renewed for Season 2. 

All three shows will move to FXX, FX's new comedy-centric network, which Landgraf said will debut on September 2 and target the 18-34 demographic. The plan is to launch FXX with four original comedies and one late-night show; the starting lineup will include the three series listed above, a TBD half-hour comedy from FX's current development slate, and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, which will also move to FXX and expand to five nights per week. 

Which of these renewals are you most excited about? How does the FXX network sound to you so far?

    What channel will FXX be on cause I have DISH... Will you have to pay for that channel?

    Legit, Legit, Legit. Did I tell you I'm excited the Legit has been renewed.

    I love Legit and It's Always Sunny so I'm happy about this news. I'm not sure if Brand X is gonna make it or not tho :/

    Sounds like I'll just keep watching FX. :)

    I was happy about Legit getting another season until I read the stuff about it moving to FXX (which sounds like a TV station in a porn parody). Legit is one of only three shows I watch on FX. What's more likely: that I'm going to follow Legit over to a new station or stick to stations I'm already familiar with? I wasn't aware cable stations had so many viewers they could afford to skim them off to other channels.

    really you're not going to watch a show you like because its moving networks? i dont understand

  • vicbjones Jun 01, 2013

    More like I'm not too likely to go looking for a show on a network I've never even heard of before.

  • CharmedOneP391 Jun 01, 2013

    are you talking about yourself? Or a person who watches Legit (or any one these shows) and doesn't know that FX is splitting into FXX?Because I agree a random person wont be looking for their shows on the new network. You though, since you've commented on this article now know when and where your show is going to be, so why not watch the new network?

    There are times I might want to watch Have Gun, Will Travel. I know it's on Encore Westerns, but I don't know off the top of my head which among my hundreds of channels it's on. I've only recently figured out what channel FX is on (from watching Justified and Archer regularly), and I've grown comfortable not bothering to change the channel from Archer to watch Legit. I'm not interested in hunting Legit down to watch it.

    This is the show I care the least about Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. I mean not at all. This show should never been aired, if I want to watch crap like this I'd watch Jon Stewart or the biggest idiot of all, Bill Maher.

  • mrjimmyjames Mar 30, 2013

    I have no idea why Bell has a show. Talk about nonexistent. The show might as well be hosted by a ghost. At least Brand has notoriety from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

    FX has a bad habit of creating pointless, forgetable talk shows. Who remembers Orlando Jones' show?

  • Shreela Mar 29, 2013

    Justified and Archer! Tried to watch Sunny, but ewww. Legit's kinda ewww too.

  • yotaruvegeta Mar 29, 2013

    If FXX is taking all of these shows, if FX going away? There's barely anything else worth watching on FX.
