The Gang go further than they’ve ever gone before…

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is returning for its 15th season in December, and the newest trailer heavily features the gang’s trip to Ireland.

Dennis, Charlie, Mac, Dee, and Frank are all back for the new season of the long running comedy series.

The gang go on holiday to Ireland, where Charlie finds a kindred spirit in one of the locals, played by our very own Colm Meaney.

This is the first time that the show has filmed an episode in a different country, with the gang only making it as far as the Jersey Shore on their holidays before.

It’s been no secret that an episode from the newest season was being filmed here.

A call out came earlier in the year searching for a Danny DeVito lookalike for the episode.

We can’t wait to see who was cast in that role…

The series has been no stranger to controversy, and judging from the trailer, it looks as though some things don’t change.

One scene sees Mac deciding to become a Catholic priest, swearing that he can take the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit all at once.

Another clip sees Frank admitting to have visited Jeffrey Epstein’s island – on a snorkelling trip.

The gang also looks to take on the presidential election of 2020, with Dennis and Mac playing country music for a group of protestors hoping to “Stop the Steal”, and an appearance from the horned fur cap protestor from the attack on the US Capitol from 6 January.

If this season is anything like previous ones, we’re sure there will be plenty of unforgettable moments.

The new season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres on FXX on 1 December in the States.
