FOX comedy “The Mick” has predictably earned a second season renewal.
While the show has not been a mammoth live+same-day draw, it has posted fairly consistent numbers since premiering in January. It also routinely attracts a bigger audience than its “New Girl” lead-in; last week’s episode also built on “New Girl” in the adults 18-49 demographic.
The show, moreover, clearly has the support of FOX from a creative standpoint.
“From the earliest stages of development, all of us at FOX had enormous faith in THE MICK, and it hasn’t disappointed,” said FOX’s David Madden. “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.”
Season one of “The Mick” is still in progress; a new episode airs Tuesday night.
