Netflix has confirmed a UK and Ireland release date for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16.
The long-running American sitcom will air its 16th season in the region on September 15th. This comes over two months after it was initially premiered in America. The latest instalment of The Gang’s adventures debuted on June 7th through Disney’s television channel, FXX.
To mark the news, Netflix UK and Ireland wrote on Twitter: “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia S16 comes to Netflix UK/IE on September 15th!” Accordingly, it didn’t take long for fans to share their excitement.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator and star Rob McElhenney is to have a busy month. On September 12th, he and Ryan Reynolds – his fellow actor and co-owner of League Two football club Wrexham AFC – will release the second series of their hit series following their exploits in north Wales, Welcome to Wrexham.
Although McElhenney’s latest hit show has only been running since last year, It’s Always Sunny is a mainstay of popular culture, with it running since it first aired in August 2005. As its 15th season arrived in 2021, it replaced The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as the longest-running live-action American sitcom.
The show’s new season will see the regular cast return to Paddy’s Pub: Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, Danny DeVito, and Rob McElhenney.
In other It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia news, last month, the star of Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul, reflected on appearing in McElhenney’s sitcom alongside his co-star from the neo-western, Bryan Cranston. Notably, Paul and Cranston played exaggerated versions of themselves as the storyline followed them on a tour of their Dos Hombres venture, their real-life Mezcal company. Of course, they encounter The Gang during the episode.
“Yeah, it was so much fun. I just loved that whole crew over there. I’ve known them for so many years, and what a dream, really,” Paul told The Hollywood Reporter.
