It’s been 10 months since we’ve seen new schemes from the Gang, but with the first trailer for Season 14 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, it’s clear that the wait is almost over.
Released by FXX earlier this week, the short clip teases plenty of classic It’s Always Sunny-style weirdness, from a meerkat-centric trip to the Philadelphia Zoo and a casaba melon-obsessed Frank, to a black-and-white film noir parody. So far, episode titles, which typically succinctly explain the plot, include gems like “Thunder Gun 4: Maximum Cool,” “Dee Day,” and "The Gang Chokes,” according to IMDB.

FXX also released a brief season description that reveals a little more info, indicating that throughout the upcoming run of episodes, “Mac learns a new language, Charlie does a period piece, Dennis attempts a one-act play, Dee cuts her hair, and Frank performs a death scene.”
Series creator and star Rob McElhenney, meanwhile, has been teasing Season 14 since it started filming earlier this summer, giving glimpses of Rocky IV star Dolph Lundgren on set via an Instagram post, and telling the Television Critics Association that episodes will deal with everything from global warming to finding love through an AirBnB listing.
Last month, McElhenney also shared a Season 14 poster for the show that depicted the Gang as wrestlers.
Last season saw a reduction in appearances from actor Glenn Howerton, better known as Dennis Reynolds on It’s Always Sunny, thanks to NBC’s A.P. Bio sitcom, which was renewed for a third season back in July for NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming service, after being canceled by the network in May. However, Howerton, is expected to have a more substantial role in It’s Always Sunny’s upcoming season.
Whatever happens this season, it will be a landmark one for It’s Always Sunny. At 14 seasons strong, the show is currently tied with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet for the longest-running live-action sitcom. As FX said last month, the show could go on to seasons 15 and 16, Deadline reports.
