Four. Teen. Seasons. It’s truly surprising that “The Gang” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one, still alive, two, not incarcerated, and three, still going strong. And despite the fact that the show is entering its 14th season, it’s still one of TV’s most hilarious comedies, constantly pushing the bar and earning its long-time moniker of “Seinfeld on crack.” 

What’s in store for season 14? Well, if episode titles are to be believed, the gang is going to “get romantic,” choke, text, and perhaps even “solve global warming.” They may even produce another sequel to Thundergun. In fact, the second episode of the season will feature the spoken of–but never seen– character of John Thundergun played to the nines by action movie legend and Rocky Balboa villain Dolph Lungren. 

Here’s everything you need to know to stream It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia online.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Reviews

What the critics are saying

  • Rarely do comedies last as long as this one has, and rarer still do they continue to challenge themselves as well as their viewers. Judge it however you like, but the gang has made it impossible to ignore “Sunny” in 2017.” –Ben Travers, Indiewire
  • “For all the ambition and exaggeration of these episodes, however, it’s the subtle “Mac & Dennis Move to the Suburbs” that best summarizes Sunny’s approach to its “golden” years. A warm, inviting suburban atmosphere has long been a staple of American sitcoms, and Sunny instantly corrupts it.” –Aaron Riccio, Slant Magazine
