‘The Mick’ is an American sitcom, which is also a black comedy, and airs on Fox. It first premiered on January 1, 2017. The series has been created by Dave Chemin and John Chernin. Kaitlin Olson of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘ fame stars in the show, and acts as the executive producer as well.
The best part about sitcoms is that even if it starts out small, word of mouth gets around, and eventually, we see viewers lounging around, just to spend more time with the characters, with whom they have become familiar. In the case of ‘The Mick’, Kaitlin already brought her own fans who are used to seeing her belt out some debauched humor in the Danny DeVito starring series. However, when it came to a critical consensus, the show was only met with mixed reviews, where some critics appreciated the way the series kept the humor simple, while others seemed to have a problem with this very simplicity.
The Mick Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘The Mick’ includes Kaitlin Olson as Mackenzie aka Mickey Molng, who has a hard life and later becomes a parental guardian. Sofia Black-D’Elia appears as Sabrina Pemberton, who is one of Mickey’s nieces, Thomas Barbusca plays the role of Chip Pemberton, who is her first nephew and Jack Stanton appears as Ben Pemberton, that is, her other nephew. Carla Jimenez appears in the series as Alba Maldonado, who is a housekeeper and Scott MacArthur is seen in the role of James Shepherd aka Jimmy, who is seen playing the role of Mickey’s fake boyfriend.
The recurring cast includes Tricia O’Kelley as Pamela Pemberton, Laird Macintosh as Christopher Pemberton, Wayne Wilderson as Principal Gibbons, E.J. Callahan as Colonel Pemberton and Arnell Powell as Fred the Fed. These characters all strive to add a comic element to the show and they interact with the main cast members to make the overall experience more enjoyable.
If there is an upcoming season, if it happens, hopefully, the main cast will return, and they will be joined by some new characters, and not to mention some guest stars as well. Some of the recurring characters might get promoted to the main cast, and it would be interesting to see how that makes a change in the overall dynamic and direction of the series.
