The eleventh season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia premiered January 6, 2016 on FXX and concluded on March 9, 2016. It consists of 10 episodes.

History

On April 4, 2014 it was announced that FX had signed RCG Productions to a 3-year contract to produce more comedy shows, including Season 11 and Season 12 of Sunny.[1]

Writing for the season was underway in February 2015, with Glenn Howerton tweeting a concept for an episode might include a follow-up to the game CharDee MacDennis.[2]

Episode titles were revealed on IMDb in August of 2015.[3] The first trailer for the season was revealed in late September 2015.

On November 12, 2015, it was announced Season 11 would begin airing on January 6, 2016.[4]

Returning Elements

In true Sunny form, Season 11 features the return of many key concepts, jokes, and characters. The first episode "Chardee MacDennis 2: Electric Boogaloo" features a return to the game Chardee MacDennis which was introduced in Season 7's "Chardee MacDennis: The Game of Games."

The second episode "Frank Falls Out the Window" features many throwbacks to the events of Season 2 when Danny DeVito joined the show as Frank Reynolds.

Dee's desire to be an actress and Charlie's art are featured heavily in "Dee Made a Smut Film" while Mac and Dennis' relationship as roommates is explored in "Mac & Dennis Move to the Suburbs."

The Lawyer, the McPoyles, and Bill Ponderosa returned in a follow-up to Season 8's "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" in "McPoyle vs. Ponderosa: The Trial of the Century".

The gang failed to go on yet another successful vacation in "The Gang Hits the Slopes," "The Gang Goes to Hell" and "The Gang Goes to Hell: Part Two."

Mac's sexuality, a theme throughout many episodes over all seasons, comes to a head in the final two episodes "The Gang Goes to Hell" and "The Gang Goes to Hell: Part Two."
