FOX may have cancelled The Mick, but what would have happened if it was renewed? Recently, creators John and Dave Chernin spoke with TVLine about their ideas for season three.
The comedy, which wrapped in April, starred Kaitlin Olson as Mickey, a grifter who is left to care for her sister’s spoiled little rich kids in affluent Greenwich, Connecticut. The cast also included Sofia Black-D’Elia, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton, Carla Jimenez, and Scott MacArthur.
Everybody was saying we were coming back, so we were pretty blindsided by that. The general plan was to catch up months after the accident. Sabrina was going to be pretty f–ed up. We think [Sofia Black-D’Elia] is the most incredible actress, so we wanted to basically have Sabrina learn how to walk and talk again.”
And what about Mickey? Dave Chernin says season three would’ve further explored Mickey and Jimmy’s relationship:
We worked really hard in Season 2 to make Jimmy a likable character, which we did by having Mickey s–t all over him. … In Season 3, we wanted to tip the seesaw in the other direction, having Jimmy be the a–hole in the relationship.”
What do you think? Did you watch The Mick? Would you have watched a third season?
