It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 16: Release date, trailer, cast, plot & more
Get ready for more rounds at Paddy’s Pub, as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is heading back to FXX for Season 16 – here’s everything we know about the next chapter, including its release date, trailer, cast, plot, and more.
The arrival of Season 16 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will mark 18 long months since the last, which saw the show break the record as the longest-running live-action US comedy series ever. But arguably what’s even more impressive is that the sitcom, despite having a few ups and downs, has been pretty consistent since first hitting our screens in 2005.
Set in Philly dive bar Paddy’s Pub, the series revolves around a group of dysfunctional and narcissistic friends – Dennis, Dee, Mac, and Charlie, and their loveable curmudgeon Frank – with each new chapter seeing the gang embark on a number of beer-fuelled shenanigans. Alongside its absurdist humor, Sunny doesn’t shy away from tackling controversial topics, earning itself a loyal following with those who enjoy boundary-pushing jokes.
With Season 16 on the way, here’s everything we know, including the release date, trailer, cast, plot, and more.

It’s Always Sunny Season 16 plot: What is it about?
The official synopsis for Season 16 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia reads: “The Gang is ripping straight from the headlines – inflation, US-Russian relations, mental health, gender equality, injury liability, gun control, and… celebrity-branded products. But here’s a headline for you: ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns for Sweet Season 16!’
“But there’s nothing sweet about them as Ronald ‘Mac’ MacDonald (Rob McElhenney), Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day), Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton), Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito) yearn for the past as they attempt to survive in 2023.”
As for what’s going on in their lives this year, Mac will be “battling with allergies and long-distance dating,” Charlie deals with his “long-forgotten sisters,” Dee tackles “rent control and women’s athletics,” and Frank “wrestles for his gun.” The latest chapter will also look at mental health as Dennis struggles to improve his own. “At the end of the day, they’re navigating 2023 with 16 years of baggage as a few figures from their past rear their heads,” adds FX.

Will there be more seasons of It’s Always Sunny?
Yes, FXX announced back in 2020 that the sitcom had been renewed for four more runs, meaning seasons 15, 16, 17, and 18 have been given the greenlight. But considering how long the show has been going for, there could be even more down the line too.
In fact, upon the news of the four-season go-ahead, Rob McElhenney, who is also the series creator tweeted: “Sunny was originally pitched as a 36 season arc. So happy to be halfway done.”
