Production info, plot and cast

It`s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a black comedy television sitcom that`s been running on FX since August 4, 2005, and has been moved to FXX starting in its ninth season. The current 11th season premiered on January 6, 2016. The series was created, developed and executive produced by Rob McElhenney. He wasn`t doing all of it alone – Glenn Howerton collaborated on development and writing, with Charlie Day contributing to the writing as well. It`s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment, RCG Productions, Bluebush Productions, Jersey Films and FX Productions.

If you think that depraved underachievement is easy, think again and take a good look at how complicated life gets for the folks at It`s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Each one of the group displays an array of negative qualities and engages in a variety of activities that sometimes border on criminal, but are most often just unethical and ridiculous. Twins Dennis and Dee Reynolds (Glenn Howerton and Kaitlin Olson), Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day) Ronald McDonald (Rob Mc Elhenney) and Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito) are the gang behind the dilapidated Irish bar called Paddy`s Pub, where most of the action takes place.

Critical response and series` renewal

This show has attracted an almost cult following, and has received almost universally positive reviews throughout its run. Jonathan Storm of the Philadelphia Inquirer had dubbed the series “Seinfeld on crack”, and the tagline had stuck to the point of eventually being used as a slogan by the FXX network. The series has already been renewed for a twelfth season as a part of a three-year deal, but the release date has not yet been set by the network, so please stay tuned for further details.

Season 11 finale recap

A 10-episode eleventh chapter of the hit FXX network’s sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia wrapped up on March 9th on not such a bright note, ratings’ wise. The season finale has only attracted 0.46 million viewers to the small screen, making it the lowest-rated episode of the season (in contrast, the premiere episode delivered more than 0.7 million viewers). It is a good thing then that the show has already been renewed for another round. We personally think that the final episode was really funny and, most importantly it stayed true to the show’s tone and irreverent humor. That was particularly evident in a scene when facing a possible death the members of The Gang chose to reveal each other’s dark secrets instead of making personal confessions. The twist ending was especially delightful and hilarious.
