News & Interviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 12
It's precisely because Always Sunny depicts such a defiantly anti-P.C. group of people that its turn toward sharper social criticism feels so rich.
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.
The best they can do is highlight the basic inequality they see, but because they can't feel it, "The Gang Turns Black" is just a surface-level experiment.
Sometimes it feels like an American continuation of the anarchic spirit of The Young Ones...Throughout, it remains both transgressive and ingenious.
If It's Always Sunny can jump the shark, this is when it'd happen - but for the time being, it looks like they've stuck the landing.
If this complicated concept was executed by any other comedy, it wouldn't strike the same balance of hilariously reckless and soberly insightful as this [premiere] does.
I'm one of its biggest fans, and it inspired me to go into comedy myself. And yet, by the end of last week's "The Gang Turns Black," I found myself shaken and deeply unsettled.
As they near the horizon of what may well be their end, they have dared to branch out -- conceptually as well as emotionally -- and they have refused to rest on their laurels.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia always manages to impress because it isn't afraid to be daring in just how far it pushes it characters. Who might've guessed the furthest it would push a character would be into normalcy?
It's a sitcom that works not just because of how funny it is, but because it's so adept and sending up and indulging in the very worst of America.
Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 12
May 04, 2017While it begins incredibly strong, Season 12 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia gives out about halfway through and ends up being one of the weakest seasons of the series. The show makes two rather risky moves to shake things up, bringing Mac out of the closet and making Dennis a father, and neither of them pays off (as they're not funny). In fact, Mac being ambiguously or mistakenly gay has been a huge source of laughs in the past few seasons, and with that gone the character dynamics are all off. However, there are a couple of brilliant episodes, such as "The Gang Turns Black" and "Old Lady House: A Situation Comedy," that are extraordinarily funny. It has its moments, but overall Season 12 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is kind of rough.Dann M Super Reviewer
Sep 24, 2020The series has sold out to the social justice warrior rhetoric. The characters have been annihilated acting in ways completely contrary to their traits and abilities.
Jul 16, 2020It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia continues to excel and exceed expectations throughout its long life, and Season 12 brings great moments from the characters we love.

Oct 04, 2019The best season yet.
Aug 16, 2019A few odd episodes - feels like the show is trying to get more political. It confronts, and shows the dark side of racism and homelessness. I guess it can be argues that Always Sunny has always done this, but it's certainly more noticeable in this seeason. I'm not saying this is a bad thing, not at all. TV show and film makers should indeed tackle these horrors of society, they're in a powerful position to do so, and the morally correct thing is to challenge hate. I just think it takes a little away from the comedy aspect of the show. Maybe this is a good thing.
Oct 22, 2018Many great episodes here.
Feb 14, 2018The gang goes soft in season 12, hinting at the series vying for a broader appeal. The gang has every right to try for a larger market, but I'd choose Paddy's Pub over Sudz any day.
Nov 17, 2017Far and away the worst season they've ever made. One half decent episode (hero or hate crime).
Apr 28, 2017Still the funniest show on tv.
