It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Cast: Who is in it?

The lead characters of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ are Dennis, Deandra, Charlie Kelly, Ronald McDonald and Frank Reynolds. The role of Kelly, an addict with anger issues, is played by Charlie Day. Glenn Howerton plays the role of Dennis, a man with personality disorder issues and a serious case of narcissism. Not to forget, he might also be a serial killer. Rob McElhenney plays the role of Ronald, the co-owner of the pub and its bouncer who always disappears during a physical confrontation. He comes out as gay in the twelfth season. Kaitlin Olson plays the character of Deandra, Dennis’ twin who wants to be an actress and also exhibits some violent behaviour. Danny DeVito plays the role of Frank, Dennis and Dee’s legal father, a man with a dark and complicated past.

Danny DeVito (Frank), Kaitlin Olson (Sweet Dee), Charlie Kelly (Charlie) and Rob McElhenney (Mac) returned for season 13. After the season 12 finale ended with Dennis declaring he was leaving Philadelphia to ‘go be a dad’, his return for the next season had been uncertain. However, it was confirmed in August 2018 that Glenn Howerton (Dennis) would very much participate in the thirteenth season and be “in pretty much every episode.” A few other guest stars who were part of season 13 are Mindy Kaling as Cindy, Kate Comer as Amanda, Artemis Pebdani as Artemis Dubois, and Sandy Martin as Mrs Mac, among others.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Plot: What is it about?

The show follows the story of five people who find compatibility with each other because of their inability to fit it with the rest of the world. Every one of them has a trait that makes it hard for people to like them. They might seem funny in the show, but you wouldn’t want friends like them in real life. However, this doesn’t stay forever. With every season, the characters grow through a slow and steady arc where the comedy gets better and the characters seem to be turning into better people, though still continuing with their dangerous antics.

In season 12, Mac came out of the closet and a relationship between Charlie and the waitress had blossomed. It seemed as if Dennis’ character was written off the show. As Dennis assumes his role as a father in North Dakota, his future in the series seems uncertain. Season 13 begins with a woman named Cindy filling his shoes in the Gang. She has a new proposition to invite more business and the Gang appears to be confident in her presence. Charlie is still living with the waitress and hopes to have a child with her. Mac explores his sexuality and Dee goes further into promoting feminism.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 14 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ season 13 premiered on September 5, 2018. The show was renewed for seasons 13 and 14 even before the premiere of season 12, based on the global popularity that the show has gained over the years. “If anyone doubts the power of a camcorder and a dream, just look at ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’, which was a DIY backyard pilot when Rob [McElhenney], Charlie [Day] and Glenn [Howerton] brought it to FX and will go down in TV history as one of the most loved and enduring comedies,” said FX’s President of Programming Nick Grad. “Few shows make it this far or have such devoted fans, and we owe it all to the creative vision and great humour of the creators and cast who keep Sunny fresh and inventive every season.”

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ season 14 is all set to release on September 25, 2019. So, don’t forget to mark your calendars. Further good news is that the network is aiming for at least one more season in the series. “But I think 15 is the record for a comedy, so I imagine we’ll all want to hold the record for the longest-running comedy in America. Fifteen would be the record for the longest live-action comedy, so we’ll probably try and break that record if we can,” Charlie Day told in an interview with The Wrap.

However, as of now, it’s great news enough that season 14 is coming soon. Whether or not the series gets to break the record is yet to be seen. The cast has expressed its enthusiasm and has promised the fans that they will try their best to get another season for the show. The final decision rests with the network. Considering the success the show has met with, it wouldn’t be a surprise if we get the fifteenth season. As soon as we receive further news on the matter, we will update this section.
