It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 11 (2016)


Season 11
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Critics Consensus

The gang remains hopelessly toxic in an uproarious season filled with self-sabotage and routine recklessness, but viewers who love the series' craven humor probably wouldn't want them any other way.

Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 11

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

This season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has exemplified much of what the series does best.

Top Critic

If we live in the golden age of television, the FXX comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is one of the underappreciated gems.

Nov 7, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

This 11th season is like watching the Harlem Globetrotters. They're doing difficult, outrageous things that -- thanks to talent, practice, and the sense that this is where they truly belong -- look absurdly easy.

Top Critic

The series reflects some of America's problems as if through a distorted funhouse mirror.

Jan 4, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

[S]eason 11 looks like the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia crew doubling down on pushing the boundaries of what constitutes a "new" episode of television without caring about attracting new fans in the process.

Nov 13, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Always Sunny has always been, in essence, a raunchier version of Seinfeld, but it's also grown into so much more in the ensuing years. The series built its own world, which was on grand display in the 11th season of the show.

May 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Maybe it wasn't the best season the show has ever had, but if they can keep creating episodes such as the finale, it's still one of the best comedies on television.

Mar 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 11 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia appears to be somewhere between more of the same and a continuing natural progression, which is by no means a complaint. I mean, it would be weird if the characters grew too much, right?

Mar 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It still felt like Sunny, but there was a new electricity crackling through it. Season 10 didn't quite match that fervor, though, and Season 11 seems to be much the same.

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It was all glorious.

Jan 7, 2016 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

The show may still be living on the fringe, but it -- along with its devoted viewers -- wouldn't have it any other way.

Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 11

  • Jun 02, 2016
    The laughs keep coming as It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia heads into an eleventh season. Surprisingly ambitious, the series attempt some creative and daring episodes, including a sequel to "Chardee MacDennis," a courtroom drama ("McPoyle vs. Ponderosa: The Trial of the Century"), and a first person POV episode ("Being Frank"). They even do a time-travel-ish series reboot episode with "Frank Falls Out the Window." And the writers do a great job at bringing back insides jokes and character quarks that have been built-up throughout the series. Additionally, a couple of guest stars pop up, including Richard Grieco, Reginald VelJohnson, and Guillermo del Toro. Taking the Gang to some strange and interesting new place, Season 11 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is incredibly entertaining and fun.

    i'm from the suburbs and it's honestly not that bad :(

    Contains some classic episodes - but still not at its absolute best. However, Always Sunny less than best still smashes most other comedies in the last 20 years.
  • Oct 21, 2018
    Many great episodes are to be found in this season of Sunny.
  • Mar 01, 2018
    Difficult to pick a top season, but it's for sure up there with the best for me
  • Jun 07, 2017
    Sunny has never failed to make me laugh, the character developement alone is a masterpiece of television, the social issues and all the schemes that "the gang" get up to are original and hilarious. there is not many Tv shows that show this consistency of comedy. There is always a place in my heart for this show and in my opinion it is the best acted, well written, pure genius zenith of what a comedy is meant to be.

    You know how it is often said about a series that has been on the air for ten years that "it's still good but it's not what it used to be". Well, that is not the case for Sunny. The series stared in 2005 and it's eleventh season was just as fresh, just as hideous, just as nasty and just as fun. The characters, which we've grown to love despite their terrible personalities were back, probably worse than ever. The season culminated with a fantastic finale, which was - hands down - the best episode of the series. Season 11 would serve as a great farewell season, with a perfect ending, but It's Always Sunny will be back for at least three more seasons ...

    I enjoyed being outside of Paddy's more often in this season, and I'm a sucker for the gimmicky episodes like "The Gang Hits the Slopes," a parody of an 80's comedy.
  • Mar 17, 2016
    it's always funny in philidelphia
  • Mar 07, 2016
    This season is absolutely awful. It feels like they are just trying to rush these episodes out without the care and attention to detail they used to have. Where is the great dialogue? They are just recycling old jokes in the laziest of ways. In a show of outrageously funny extremes, the subtle humor in between the big blowups was the true genius of Always Sunny. This season has lost it completely. Season 10 was only slightly better. At least I can rewatch seasons 1 - 9 ad nauseam.
