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.
Fox announced today that four additional episodes have been ordered for Season 1 of The Mick. The good news comes after a strong start to the freshman comedy, which premiered on News Year's Day before moving to its regular time slot on Tuesday nights.
The Mick stars Kaitlin Olson, best known for playing Sweet Dee in FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in her first leading role on network television. In the new series Olson plays Mickey - an overbearing hustler from Rhode Island who is unexpectedly given guardianship of her estranged sister's three high-maintenance children.
Today's top-up extends the first season of The Mick to a total of 17 episodes. While new episodes typically air Tuesday nights, look for a special airing this Sunday following the hour-long episode of The Simpsons.
