The first poster for It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s upcoming thirteenth season has landed, and it’s a spooky one. Even though new episodes of Sunny were broadcast early last year, it feels like it has been much longer since we got our fix of the gang.
Now, there is no way of dancing around the fact the Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton) is noticeably missing from the main line-up. The recently released synopsis for the new season suggests that Dennis plays a part, but is adjusting to his new life in North Dakota as a father. Could that be Dennis in the background wielding a weapon? Has living the quiet life driven him mad? Well, we saw what a month living with Mac in the suburbs did to him, what has eighteen months in North Dakota done to his fragile mind? We’ll have to wait until September to find out when It’s Always Sunny finally returns. Early word has it that Netflix UK will air new episodes 24 hours after the US broadcast.
Here’s the official synopsis for season thirteen.
“The Gang Returns…mostly…in the 13th season of the FXX original comedy series ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.’ Mac, Charlie, Dee, and Frank return to their duplicitous, scheming ways at Paddy’s Pub, while Dennis takes on the new role of a father in North Dakota. Last season, the Gang experienced new highs — Mac acknowledged his sexuality and Charlie convinced the Waitress, his longtime target of affection, to move in with him — and the lowest of lows — Frank became the official beverage sponsor of a terrorist group, Dee helped a man reach rock bottom, and Dennis was investigated for murder.
Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with the Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history — an Eagles Super Bowl victory.”
