Plot Synopsis

Based on the Australian TV series A MOODY CHRISTMAS, THE MOODYS is a half-hour comedy series that follows a tight-knit, but slightly dysfunctional family of five, all of whom gather in their hometown of Chicago for the "perfect" holiday. From break-ups to arrests to sharing one bathroom, each family member is packing his/her own eccentricities and hiding secrets from the others -- as if the holidays were all about carols and eggnog! The family includes Sean Sr.; his wife, Ann; and their three grown children -- Dan, the youngest of the siblings and the "creative one"; Bridget, the middle sister and the "overachiever"; and Sean Jr., the oldest sibling and "screw-up," still living at home with his parents. Freshly single, Dan returns to his childhood home for Christmas to find it's in various stages of disarray, with one functioning bathroom. As the extended family gathers for a welcome meal, Dan meets Cora, with whom he instantly clicks. There's only one problem: she's already dating his cousin. Then, in an unexpected turn of events, all the Moodys find themselves living under the same roof again when Bridget, who lives in the Chicago area, returns to her childhood home with a suitcase in hand after a fight with her husband. FOX premiered the six-episode series as a three-night event series, debuting back-to-back episodes from 9-10pm ET/PT on Wed Dec 4, Mon Dec 9 and Tue Dec 10, 2019.

On Tuesday, December 10, 2019 from 9-10pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the one-hour finale of THE MOODYS. With Christmas quickly approaching, Sean Sr. receives the top honor as the lector of Midnight Mass. Meanwhile, when Sean Sr. invites some unexpected guests to Christmas Eve dinner, Ann starts to unravel. And just when the Moodys think things couldn't possibly get worse, they are faced with a devastating challenge. All Ann wanted was a nice, white Christmas! Don't miss a few more surprises.
