Fox has ordered seven additional episodes of their comedy THE MICK starring Kaitlin Olson. This will bring the season 2 total to 20, three more episodes than it produced in the first season.
The series launched last season as a midseason show with a 13-episode order. The Mick order comes after an additional five-episode order for Fox musical drama Star, bringing the total to 18.
The comedy was moved to Tuesdays at 9 PM this season, and the show has done well in the slot. The Season 2 premiere in September drew 2.8 million viewers and 0.9 demo rating, which bested its numbers for the season 1 finale.
The Mick is a comedy about a hard-living aunt who is forced to take care of her wealthy sister’s privileged kids after their mom flees the country to avoid criminal charges.
The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, created/written by John and Dave Chernin. Executive producing is Kaitlin Olson, Nicholas Frenkel, Oly Obst and Scott Marder.
