‘The Mick’ Scores Full Season 2 Order at Fox

Fox has picked up sophomore comedy “The Mick” for a full second season, Variety has confirmed.

The network has upped the show’s episode order this season to 20 episodes, three more than the series got for its freshman season earlier this year.

The series stars “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s” Kaitlin Olson as Mickey, an unapologetic degenerate stuck raising her spoiled niece (Sofia Black-D’Elia) and nephews (Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton) amid the lap of luxury in Greenwich, Connecticut. The series also stars Scott MacArthur and Carla Jimenez.

The series was created by John Chernin and Dave Chernin, who serve as showrunners. The Chernin brothers, Olson, Nicholas Frenkel, Oly Obst, and Scott Marder are executive producers.

The series has been a stable comedy performer for Fox. The Season 2 premiere in September drew a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.7 million viewers. Season 1 averaged a 1.1 and 2.95 million viewers, though it should be noted that the series premiere aired immediately after NFL football, which drove those numbers up. For the show’s second season, Fox moved it from its 8:30 p.m. timeslot on Tuesdays to 9 p.m. as part of a one-hour comedy block alongside “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

TVLine first reported this news.
