FXX has ordered a new animated comedy series called Little Demon, which follows a woman who was impregnated by the Devil and gave birth to the Antichrist. That’s a good hook on its own, but the casting is even better: Danny DeVito will voice the Devil, while Aubrey Plaza is voicing the mother of the Antichrist. As for the Antichrist, she’ll be voiced by Lucy DeVito, Danny DeVito’s real-life daughter. Dan Harmon serves as one of the executive producers on the show, which was created by Darcy Fowler, Seth Kirschner, and Kieran Valla.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was recently renewed for season 15 at FX (or FXX), but the cable comedy series is actually sticking around for a lot longer than that. The series created by star Rob McElhenney has officially been renewed for four more seasons, which will be enough to not only break the record as the longest-running live-action comedy series in American television history, but completely shatter it.

For the past three seasons of the FXX animated comedy series Archer, the dashing dolt and lead character Sterling Archer has been in a coma. That allowed the show to change up its style, shifting from a slick spy comedy to completely imagined adventures taking place in Archer’s subconscious, inspired by film noir, pulpy Pacific island stories, and science fiction movies.
But as explained in the Archer Comic-Con panel 2020, the show is returning to its spy roots after Sterling Archer woke up in the season 10 finale. Plus, a couple of cool guest stars for the new season were revealed. Get the highlights from the panel below, or watch the whole thing if you’re interested. Read More »
Later this month, the FX comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia begins a historic 14th season. It’s the second of a two-season order made in 2016 that will make the series the longest-running live-action comedy series in TV history, tied with The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet. But just because It’s Always Sunny is making TV history doesn’t mean the gang has become anymore sophisticated.
As the recently released It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 trailer shows, this fall will have plenty of nonsensical mayhem from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito, including a laser tag face-off, a mysterious melon, a film noir plot device, and much more insanity.

Keep reading to learn the newly-announced It’s Always Sunny premiere date, as well as what to expect in this new era of the show. Read More »
