Season 14 Of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Arrives On 19 January
Let's be honest with ourselves, January is the worst month of the year. It's just awful - you've got no money, you've eaten too much over Christmas, and it's dark by 2pm. Why bother?
Well, though many of us will be looking to the New Year with a sense of foreboding, Netflix has a treat in store to help sooth those winter blues.
That's because the streaming service has just announced that season 14 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be dropping on 19 January.
And quite frankly, I couldn't think of a better place to drown my sorrows than Paddy's Pub.
Netflix confirmed the release on its Twitter account, writing: "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia s14 will be with you on 19 Jan."

The show itself centres on a dysfunctional gang, consisting of brother and sister Dennis (Glenn Howerton) and Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson) and their friends Charlie (Charlie Day) and Mac (Rob McElhenney), who all co-own an Irish bar in Philadelphia.
Along with Frank Reynolds - played by an always-stunning Danny DeVito - they make up a group of some of the worst people in America. The very worst.
Admittedly, Mac and the gang aren't exactly the types to fill you with Christmas cheer, but the show's cynical tone definitely makes it the perfect post-festive season watch, complimenting your inevitable hatred for everything good in the world.
Over the past few weeks and months there has been some talk that this could be the last we see of Mac, Frank, Dennis, Sweet Dee and Charlie, with fans fearing the end of the road for the gang.
However, those concerns may have been abated by FX CEO John Landgraf who said there will be many more adventures to come.
Earlier this year, he said: "As long as we can come to business terms that fit both our needs and they can continue to make episodes as good as they have been making, there is a good chance it may go past season 14."
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the possibility of making another series, McElhenney also said: "For us, we just have a short checklist: Do we still enjoy it, are we still having fun, are we still stretching ourselves creatively, and is the audience still there? It seems like all those boxes keep getting checked, so we keep coming back."
The show first aired in 2005 and is now one of the longest-running comedy shows on TV.
The final episode of the series aired in the US earlier this week, and while season 15 has yet to be rubber stamped by the powers that be, it looks fairly likely that it will get the go ahead, with reports suggesting it could land on screens as early as September 2020.
