Mickey’s nieces and nephews will have to put up with their wild aunt for a little longer: Fox just renewed The Mick — starring It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson as the title character — for a second season, the network announced Tuesday. This is Fox’s first freshman series to get a renewal this year.
The comedy, created by John and Dave Chernin (also Sunny alums), follows the disheveled Mickey as she tries to take care of her wealthy sister’s spoiled kids. “Ultimately, we want this to be a show about the least-equipped parent being forced to raise the most challenging children imaginable,” the Chernin brothers previously told EW.
“From the earliest stages of development, all of us at Fox had enormous faith in The Mick, and it hasn’t disappointed,” David Madden, Fox’s president of entertainment, said in a statement. “Kaitlin is a fearless comedic force, and the rest of the cast has just proven to be phenomenal. John and Dave Chernin have a very clear vision of what this show is, and they execute on that vision each week to perfection. We really couldn’t be happier with The Mick, and we’re so thrilled to renew the series for a second season.”
Fox teased The Mick‘s fate soon after the show premiered this past January when they ordered four extra episodes, expanding the first season’s run to 17 episodes total. The show currently airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
