FOX Renews 'The Moodys' for Season 2

FOX has renewed its original comedy series The Moodys for a second season, it was announced today. The comedy will join the network's upcoming 2020-21 broadcast schedule.

The first season was billed as a holiday event special, with six episodes centering around Christmas airing across three nights in December 2019. The second season will not be centered around the holidays. It will instead continue to follow the Moody family through their everyday lives.

The comedy stars Denis Leary, Elizabeth Perkins, Francois Arnaud, Chelsea Frei and Jay Baruchel.

Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill created the comedy based on the Australian format. They executive produce with Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, Trent O'Donnell, Phil Lloyd and Jason Burrows. Fox Entertainment, CBS Television Studios and The Tannenbaum Company produce.

"With The Moodys, we set out to brand the holidays in the only way Fox can - bold and unconventional," said Michael Thorn, President, Fox Entertainment. "What we ended up with was a special show - and a family - everyone at the network fell in love with. Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill perfectly captured the hysterics of Christmas, with sharp banter and real moments of family togetherness brought to life by Denis Leary, Elizabeth Perkins and the rest of the incredible cast. Eric and Kim Tannenbaum and CBS Television Studios have been great partners on this series; and, simply put, we're looking forward to The Moodys' future adventures."
