Fox’s hit freshman comedy The Mick, which just debuted in January and is headlined by Kaitlin Olson, has been renewed for a second season, the network announced Tuesday.

“From the earliest stages of development, all of us at Fox had enormous faith in The Mick, and it hasn’t disappointed,” said David Madden, president, entertainment, for Fox Broadcasting Company. “Kaitlin is a fearless comedic force, and the rest of the cast has just proven to be phenomenal. John and Dave Chernin have a very clear vision of what this show is, and they execute on that vision each week to perfection. We really couldn’t be happier with The Mick, and we’re so thrilled to renew the series for a second season.”

According to Fox, the sitcom has delivered an average multi-platform audience of eight million viewers. The series also stars Sofia Black-D’Elia, Carla Jimenez, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton and Scott MacArthur. It was created by John and Dave Chernin, who also co-produce and co-write Olson’s FXX hit It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
