It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 16 Plot: What can it be About?
The show’s fifteenth season begins with “The Gang” looking back on the past year’s misadventures. When they come to know that their films are removed from the local library, the group makes their seventh Lethal Weapon film. Meanwhile, Dee shares her enthusiasm to go to Hollywood to pursue an acting career. Disheartened, Frank manages to find a monkey to replace Dee.
When Dee gets an acting opportunity in Ireland, the group takes advantage of the situation to visit the country. Things take a wild turn when Mac finds out that he isn’t Irish. In distress, he tries to join a seminary. Midway through their Irish adventures, Dee gets stuck in a bog, and Charlie attempts to fulfill an Irish burial tradition.
The upcoming season is expected to pick up from the gang’s outrageous trip to Ireland. Like the previous editions, season 16 will also bring episodes that feature atrocious situations “The Gang” will get into. Along with quality comedy, the episodes may continue to subtly address relevant social issues. Additionally, the new season may follow Dee’s ambitions and Mac’s identity crisis. All said and done, we can expect season 16 to be equally rib-tickling and entertaining as the previous seasons.
