It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16: UK release date confirmed, trailer, and cast - is it on Netflix?
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 premieres in the UK this week
and live on Freeview channel 276
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns for its 16th season, with series regulars Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito reprising their roles as the despicable and dysfunctional friends and owners of Paddy's Pub.
The eight-part series aired in the US back in June, 18 months after the debut of the previous season, which saw the gang travel to Ireland in search of Charlie's dad. As usual, UK viewers have faced a longer wait for the newest instalment of the sitcom.
Season 16 promises to be just as anarchic as earlier episodes - Mac has a go at long-distance dating, Charlie meets his distant sisters, Frank continues his battle for gun rights, Dennis works on his mental health, and Dee becomes embroiled in a fight over rent control.
Now, more than two months after season 16 landed in the US, a release date in the UK has finally been confirmed.
