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?
