The gang from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been on TV for so long it’s hard to remember a world without Paddy’s Pub. The show debuted in 2005, roughly 84 years ago. On that day absolutely no one could have predicted the cast of unknowns was about to embark on an historical run. One that doesn’t show signs of stopping any time soon. The series is set to return for its record-setting 15th season. And based on the new trailer, It’s Always Sunny is still bringing its A-game. Which this year will include bringing it to Ireland.
Television’s worst group of friends is back. The new season 15 trailer reveals age has not conferred wisdom on any of them though. Nor grace, shame, empathy, or, in the case of Frank and Charlie, hygiene. They’re just as horrible—and funny—as ever. Their primary concerns are still selfish, with little thought for how they might impact others. Or even how they’ll look. (Find a better place to snorkel, Frank!) But this season they’ll have to deal with a changing world. Here’s the official season synopsis from FX:
“The record-breaking 15th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is its most ambitious yet. In the seismic wake of Covid-19 and all things 2020, The Gang stands at a crossroads in this strange new world. The rules are changing quicker than anyone can keep up with, despite herculean efforts from Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito) to continue business as usual. Now, they must face the music and decide who they’ll become in the cultural upheaval that is 2021. Across the span of eight episodes — and the Atlantic Ocean — we find them answer in a way only they could think to.”
The Irish did nothing to deserve the Paddy’s Pub crew. Which is why we can’t wait to see them tarnish the Emerald Isle. They might be awful people. But the world is a better place with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia around.
Season 15 debuts on FXX December 1.
