A Crossover Between ‘It’s Always Sunny’ And ‘The Office US’ Could Be Happening

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is back this September and all is well.

I maintain that the first episode of It’s Always Sunny is one of the funniest things I’ve ever watched.

It’s near perfect and I don’t know what it is, but the way it looks like it was all filmed on just one of the cast’s video cameras they had lying around in their bedroom just makes it better.

In fact, the whole first season was phenomenal, and when the studio told them they needed some star power in order for a second season to be commissioned, Danny DeVito was an absolute masterclass in casting.

It’s been a while since then though, and while there have been some excellent later episodes – The Gang Hits The Slopes and Charlie And Dee Find Love come to mind – the general hilarity of the series has been in decline.

It’s still great, though, and it’s worth mentioning that it’s better than just about most other TV sitcoms currently on air, so season 14 coming out is a welcome addition to our schedules.

It’s certainly news that will soften the blow for fans of The Office US, who recently found out that their beloved Netflix will no longer play host to the sitcom.

People were pretty gutted when that was announced, so they needed all of the good news they could get. Clinging on to It’s Always Sunny, they found solace in the upcoming season, but it looks like the Philadelphia sitcom could have more for them.

It’s a long shot, but there could be a crossover between It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Office US, as Rob McElhenney sort-of started a spat between the two.

Taking to Instagram, the actor behind Mac essentially took the piss out of The Office US for no longer being on air, whilst his show took over their recording studio.

None other than Steve Carell responded to this, saying that a crossover dubbed Always Sunny in Scranton was the only way to settle things.

That sounds pretty good, right?

Maybe an afterwork party at the office works its way through Philadelphia and ultimately into a terrible Irish pub?

It seems tenuous.
