Finding a great new series to watch is always satisfying. Finding out that it only lasts one or two seasons can be a huge blow. It's normal to want to check out the new show all your friends are talking about, but once it's over, you'll probably want something nice and long to replace it with. Comedy lovers should check out the following longest-running sitcoms; we're talking at least ten seasons. ‘Cuddle up on the couch' weather is coming soon, after all!
If you haven't watched at least one episode of Friends, you must have been living under a rock. Spanning ten seasons, Friends kind of set the precedent for modern sitcoms. It's about six friends living in New York and just hanging out. It is full of silly situations and quotable catchphrases. Bonus: unbeatable 90s fashion from a young Jennifer Aniston.
The Emmy award-winning family sitcom recently wrapped up its 11th and final season. It's about, well, a modern family - three sets of nuclear families that are related to each other. But Modern Family gives the classic family sitcom a new age twist by including gay and immigrant family members. Much more relatable!
Want to take a break from live-action comedies? Check out Bob's Burgers, a quirky adult cartoon that has ten seasons so far. The series revolves around the Belcher family, who own a struggling burger restaurant in a seaside town. It features colorful animations, unexpected voice actors, witty puns, and the occasional musical number.
Bob's Burgers fans will want to watch Archer (and vice versa). It's voiced by the same lead character; the only difference is that Sterling Archer is a lot more arrogant and inappropriate than Bob Belcher.
Technically, Archer falls under the spy category, but you don't have to be into action to enjoy this series. The over the top characters and their relationships is what really makes the show.
It will make you laugh; it will make you cry. Shameless is the story of a dysfunctional working-class family made up of a single father and his six kids. The father is useless, so the kids have to learn to look after themselves. This series is a two in one, as there's a UK version (11 seasons) and an American version (10 seasons).
Will and Grace.
This series is kind of like Friends; only all the guys are gay. Will and Grace follow the lives of four friends living in New York. The series finished its 11th season this year and was considered quite progressive when it was first released back in 1998.
The Big Bang Theory.
As it turns out, nerds are actually pretty popular. The Big Bang Theory, a series about how four socially awkward male scientists' lives changed after a pretty blonde actress moved in across the hall, has twelve entire seasons for your binging pleasure.
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
If you like inappropriate humor and ridiculous storylines, this is the sitcom for you. Coming in at 15 seasons (and counting!), It's Always Sunny is officially the longest-running live action-comedy.
The series focuses on five friends who own an Irish pub in Philadelphia and who try to do everything they can to earn a buck. Except for making an effort to run their pub efficiently, that is.
