Plot Synopsis

Mickey, a brash, two-bit hustler from Rhode Island, visits her estranged sister and billionaire brother-in-law in Greenwich, CT. But gets more than she bargained for, as this absurdly rich couple flees the country to escape federal fraud charges, leaving Mickey to assume guardianship of their three high-maintenance and ill-parented children: Sabrina, an ambitious, 18-going-on-30-year-old who is a worthy adversary to Mickey; 13-year-old Chip, an arrogant, entitled neo-con-in-the-making with an extremely punchable face; and seven-year-old Ben, an adorably fragile nerd. Having spent her entire life shirking any semblance of responsibility while looking for an easy payday, Mickey finally has a mansion, convertible, swimming pool, and walk-in closet full of designer clothes. The price? Transforming these outrageously spoiled children into honest, hard-working, decent members of society -- something this foul-mouthed, debaucherous and completely out-of-her-element woman knows absolutely nothing about. Being a mother was never in Mickey's game plan, but these kids desperately need a parent. And as irresponsible as Mickey has been her entire life, she may discover that responsibility and motherhood aren't the buzzkill she always thought they would be. On Sunday, January 1, 2017 at 8pm ET/5pm PT (or later, depending on the time the NFL football games end), FOX broadcast a special premiere of THE MICK, which moves to its regular timeslot -- Tuesdays at 8:30pm -- on January 3. Later on Sunday in the Mountain/Pacific time zones, FOX aired an encore presentation of the premiere at 7pm MT/8pm PT.
On Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 8:30pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the Season 1 finale of THE MICK. In the season ender, "The Intruder," life in the Pemberton mansion gets even more chaotic when the kids catch a pair of intruders trying to break in. Then, Mickey tries to protect the kids in a case of mistaken identity. Two months earlier -- on Tuesday, February 21 -- FOX renewed THE MICK for a second season.
