FOX announced today that it has renewed freshman comedy The Mick for a second season. The Kaitlin Olson sitcom got a strong premiere airing out of an NFL doubleheader on the last Sunday of the regular season. Then given a tough Tuesday 8:30pm timeslot, it has had a small but loyal audience and has often built on its New Girl lead-in. FOX seemed to really be behind it from the start and considering the number of problems FOX is having, The Mick is doing just fine.
The Mick joins Bob's Burgers, Empire, Hell's Kitchen, Lucifer, and The Simpsons as official renewals for next season. Sure to join them are Family Guy, Gotham, Lethal Weapon, and Masterchef Junior. It's looking good for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Star. On the bubble is 24: Legacy, The Last Man on Earth, My Kitchen Rules, New Girl, Rosewood, and Sleepy Hollow. Finally, it's not looking good for APB, The Exorcist, Pitch, Scream Queens, and Son of Zorn though a surprise renewal for one of those shows in the last group wouldn't shock me. Still to premiere is Making History, Kicking & Screaming, Making History, and the return of Prison Break.
