Renewed: The Mick

New Kaitlin Olson sitcom gets a second season, ahead of its Australian debut.

New US sitcom The Mick has been renewed for a second season ahead of its Australian debut.

The series stars Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as a brash, two-bit hustler who assumes guardianship of three high-maintenance nephews & nieces when their parents flee the country to escape federal fraud charges.

“From the earliest stages of development, all of us at FOX had enormous faith in The Mick, and it hasn’t disappointed,” said David Madden, president, entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “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.”

Coincidentally it premieres this Sunday, February 26 at 7.30pm on FOX8.

  1. I’m 10 episodes in and I love it! Very refreshing. Micky is exactly like Sweet Dee from Philly 🙂

    I can’t figure it out though. This was built for Broadcast television? With the swearing, sexual innuendo, blood and violence it seems like it should have gone straight to FXX?
    Couldn’t see it working on our FTA networks at a family friendly slot.

    Very ballsy, glad they have enough faith in it for more seasons.

    1. I haven’t noticed much swearing in it actually, and in terms of where it sits, it’s not game of thrones R rated explicit (in sex or violence) so I think it sits perfectly well with most other M rated programming. Some episodes would even be fine with a PG rating.

      In the US, this IS run on free to air, being on fox. I think it would work just fine on Ten in an 8:30 time slot in the future (a few fox shows have ended up on 10 one year behind).
