Let's celebrate at Paddy's Pub! It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be around for two more seasons.

John Landgraf, FX's president and general manager, announced Saturday at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews that the network has renewed Sunny for two seasons, and also picked up Wilfred and Louie for another 13-episode season apiece.

"We actually have an option ... to pick up a 10th season [of Sunny]. We're just picking up two for now," Landgraf said. "I don't know what stories they're going to do in Seasons 8 and 9, but I have seen all the episodes that comprise Season 7 that will be airing this September. Legitimately I think it's their funniest season so far. ... It's just uproariously funny."

The two additional seasons brings Sunny to nine seasons total, making it the longest-running live-action comedy series in basic cable history.
