It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is an American sitcom that debuted on FX on August 4, 2005, and moved to FXX beginning with the ninth season in 2013. It was made by Rob McElhenney, who created it with Glenn Howerton. It is official delivered and principally written by McElhenney, Howerton, and Charlie Day, every one of whom star alongside Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. The series follows the exploits of “The Gang,” a gathering of self-absorbed friends who run the Irish bar Paddy’s Pub in South Philadelphia.
On April 1, 2016, the series was reestablished for a thirteenth and fourteenth season, which tied it with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as the longest-running no frills sitcom in American television history in terms of number of seasons.Season 14 will debut on September 25, 2019.
The series follows “The Gang,” a gathering of five anecdotal misfit friends: twins Dennis (Glenn Howerton) and Deandra “Sweet Dee” Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson), their friends Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day) and Ronald “Macintosh” McDonald (Rob McElhenney), and (from season 2 ahead) Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito), Dennis’ and Dee’s lawful dad. The Gang runs the anecdotal Paddy’s Pub, a haggard Irish bar in South Philadelphia.
Every individual from “The Gang” displays exploitative conduct, such as excessive drinking and traits such as dishonesty and egotism. Episodes usually find them hatching elaborate schemes and regularly conspiring against each other and others for personal gain, retaliation, or simply the entertainment of watching another’s ruin. They habitually inflict mental, enthusiastic, and physical pain on one another and any individual who crosses their way. They also routinely use coercion to control each other and others outside of the gathering.
The Gang’s unity is never solid, and any of them would rapidly dump any of the others for fast profit or personal gain regardless of the consequences. Everything they do results in dispute among themselves, and a significant part of the show’s exchange involves the characters arguing or yelling at each other. Despite their absence of success or achievements, they maintain high opinions of themselves and display an obsessive interest in their reputations and open images.
The Gang has no sense of shame when attempting to get what they need and regularly participate in activities that others would find humiliating, disgusting, or shocking. Some of these situations include becoming dependent on rocks and pretending to be slow-witted in request to fit the bill for welfare, endeavored cannibalism, kidnapping, blackface, hiding exposed inside a lounge chair in request to eavesdrop on individuals, tricking a man into giving his girl a lap move, forcing each other to eat inedible items, huffing paint, foraging in the sewers for rings and coins, sleeping with one another’s sentimental interests, seducing a priest, secretly feeding someone their dead pet, plugging their open wounds with trash, grave robbing, setting a room brimming with individuals ablaze and locking the entryway to evade an awkward Thanksgiving feast, fantasizing about killing one another, pretending to have AIDS in request to get priority access to water park rides, taking out extra security on a suicidal person, orally siphoning gasoline, and stalking their crushes.
