Carla Jimenez will micking things up for longer this season…
Fox has ordered seven additional episodes of its Kaitlin Olson-starrer The Mick, featuring the 43-year-old Latina actress, bringing the Season 2 total to 20, three more episodes than it produced in Season 1.
The series launched last season as a midseason show with a 13-episode order, which is the norm for midseason starts.
Fox moved The Mick to Tuesdays at 9:00 pm ET this season, as a lead-in to Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the show has done well in the new time slot. The Season 2 premiere in September drew 2.8 million viewers and 0.9 demo rating, besting its numbers for the Season 1 finale.
The Mick is a comedy about an unapologetic degenerate (Olson) who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece (Sofia Black-D’Elia) and nephews (Thomas Barbusca, newcomer Jack Stanton) in affluent Greenwich, CT. It’s pretty much everything she never wanted. Regardless, she’s determined to rise to the occasion and transform these little monsters into honest, hard-working, decent members of society – something she knows absolutely nothing about.
Jimenez, who has appeared on Raising Hope and Last Man Standing, portrays Alba, the Pemberton’s maid.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, The Mick was created/written by John Chernin and Dave Chernin.
