List Rules Vote up the best television projects that the cast did during and after It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia first aired on FX in 2005 and 14 seasons later it's still going strong. Though it's rare for a show that debuted nearly 15 years ago to still remain fresh and relevant, that's exactly what Always Sunny is doing. Groundbreaking in so many ways at the time of it premiered and still groundbreaking to this day, Sunny has quietly influenced a whole generation of comedies all while it continues to get better with age. 

But even as Always Sunny keeps churning out some of the funniest episodes on TV, its breakout cast are seemingly unable to sit still and be content with only one hit TV show. Nearly every member of the gang has had at least one other regular role on a TV series as Sunny continues, whether they're starring, writing, or producing. From network sitcoms to surprisingly deep roles on some of mainstream television's most essential shows, it's safe to say that the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia cast projects are as varied as they are worthwhile.

If you've seen all 144 episodes of the gang's schemes and are looking to fill a Philadelphia sized void in your life, look no further than the shows that Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito have made in the time since Sunny first aired. The new shows from the Always Sunny cast often feature the same style and sense of humor that make the former series so popular, but even the series that veer in a totally different direction are still filled with things worth loving if you like nothing better than hanging out at Paddy's and calling Dee a bird. 

So shout "Hey-O" and start talking bird law with Charlie, Dee, Mac, Dennis, and Frank, and then check out these shows that feature the actors after It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and vote up the best follow-up projects.
