It's time for the start of a new era when you watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 15 online, which begins tonight. This season (but not at the start) the gang is going to Ireland. But before we get there: a look back at their very chaotic 2020.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 15 channel, start time

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 15 premieres today (Wednesday, Dec. 1).
Time — 10 p.m.
• U.S. — Watch on FXX via Sling Blue + Hollywood Extra  or Fubo.TV
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

While the South Park: Post Covid special was its own brand of wild, it looks like Sunny season 15 may bring an even funnier lens to the state of the world today. This season begins with a little light fraud, as the gang's many PPE loans are coming to light, and it seems like they all played a role in the nonsense of the current political landscape.

Then, in the second episode of the evening, we see the gang make ... Lethal Weapon 7? Yes, you read right. In an episode that seems to be rooted in the concept of being 'canceled' and things that are politically incorrect, there's a homemade Lethal Weapon sequel in the works. 

It turns out that everyone's favorite bar workers have been making these movies for years, but their versions were recently removed from the local library. The rest of the season, as teased in the episode descriptions below, see the gang going to Ireland, where Dee gets stuck in a bog and they have to carry a corpse up a mountain.

Also, check out a trailer for the new season, and read on to find out how to watch It's Always Sunny season 15 online! Oh, and if you're looking for something else to watch? We've got info on when South Park: Post-Covid 2 is coming (spoiler: pretty soon), and for how to watch Real Housewives of Orange County season 16.

How to watch It's Always Sunny season 15 in the US

In the US, FXX is in many cable packages, and can be added if yours doesn't have it. If you've cut the cord, you can find FXX on two of the best streaming services: fuboTV and Sling TV. But while it's included in fubo's regular package, Sling TV customers need to be on both Sling Blue (or Sling Blue + Orange) and add on the Hollywood Extras package for $6 per month more. 

Episodes air in pairs, back to back, at 10 p.m. in your time zone. FXX is also on some of the best cable TV alternatives, including Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FXX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

Sling TV

You can add FXX to Sling Blue (but not Sling Orange) with the $6 per month Hollywood Extra add-on. This customizability helps Sling TV provide a more budget-friendly option.

How to watch It's Always Sunny season 15 in the UK

We're guessing that history is going to repeat itself, with Netflix in the UK getting It's Always Sunny season 15 months after it arrives here. 

For example, season 14 ran in the US from September to November 2019, and then arrived on UK Netflix the following January. So if this season, which is airing entirely in December 2021, follows suit, it could arrive on UK Netflix as early as February 2021.

Americans abroad could just use the service of their choice, provided they log in via a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

How to watch It's Always Sunny season 15 in Canada
