Mackenzie "The Mick Murphy" is a brash, blue collar, two-bit hustler who has spent her entire life gaming the system and shirking any semblance of responsibility. But when her estranged sister and billionaire brother-in-law flee the country to escape federal charges, the opulent, care-free life Mickey has always envied is finally within reach… But there is one minor catch: she must assume custody of her sister's three rich, entitled, high-maintenance children.
Mickey and Jimmy throw a Halloween party in their spooky, charred mansion but things get out of hand. Sabrina hopes to use the house party to cement her legacy, which her parents have tarnished, and Mickey teaches some pranksters a lesson.
Fox handed out its first freshman renewal of the season today, announcing that The Mick has been picked up for Season 2. The good news comes nine episodes into the new comedy's run and a month after the network extended its first season by four episodes.
The series has been a solid addition to Fox's lineup this year, where it reaches an average of 8 million viewers over its multiple delivery platforms. New episodes are currently airing on Tuesday nights at 8:30pm following New Girl. Eight episodes remain in the show's first season, including a new episode tonight.
There is no word at this time whether Fox intends to move The Mick to its regular fall lineup for 2017-2018 or keep it as a mid-season entry.
