The comedy will return for a second season.
July 10, 2020
Fox announced today that The Moodys has been picked up for Season 2. Coming seven months after the comedy's freshman run, the renewal is somewhat surprising as the show was originally billed as a seemingly one-off holiday event.
The first season of the show followed the titular tight-knit family of five who have all come together for the holiday season in their hometown of Chicago. Sean Sr., his wife Ann, and their three grown children all have their own eccentricities and complications, making for a chaotic and slightly dysfunctional time in the Moody household.
Season 2 will reportedly be shifting away from the holiday theme to focus more on the family's everyday lives. Look for a return during the 2020-2021 season.
They know they have more than 1 hour to air shows. One show gets cancelled because it is old and run its course. Another gets renewed because it has viewers. Most of the time the 2 are not connected.
This worked as a short mini series but if they give it too long a run it will fail.
