The next season of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" may be without one of its biggest stars.

Glenn Howerton, who plays Dennis on the show, may not be returning to the cast for Season 13.

The gang took part in a panel at the Vulture Festival in Los Angeles on Sunday, where they talked about the next season of the show, which isn't expected to air until next year.

“We’re getting back to the writers’ room in February [2018],” Rob McElhenney, who plays Mac, said. He later mentioned the release date of the next season was likely Fall 2018.

Howerton was pressed on whether he'd be returning to the show, as the actor works on other shows.

“Eh, damn it,” Howerton said. “I will say this: All joking aside, I love these guys and we have an absolute blast working together. We’ll see."

Charlie Day said in August that he wouldn't want the show to continue without Howerton, but if he were able to do some shows, they would still do a season.

“There is a possibility that maybe we would have Dennis in part of a season, not a complete season. I think we would still do a great season. There is a possibility that we have Dennis for an entire season, which would be fantastic… I personally would not want to do the show without Dennis. And talking with Glenn, I know he still has a lot of love for the show and wants to do the show. I imagine we’ve not seen the last of Dennis Reynolds.”

Howerton is set to star in NBC's new sitcom "AP Bio" along side Patton Oswalt, which is set to premiere on early 2018.
