It is being reported that Fox has topped up the first season of The Cool Kids, adding nine episodes to its initial 13-episode order for a total of 22. The full-season pickup comes after a solid start to the new comedy, which is three episodes into its run.

Airing Fridays at 8:30pm following the revived Last Man Standing, which itself is off to a strong start on its new network, The Cool Kids has helped Fox come out on top among adults 18-49 in the 8:00pm hour in all three of its airings. Early reviews have been middling, though, with critics mixed on the merits of its laughs.

The half-hour series follows a rag-tag trio of friends living in a retirement community. And because of their advanced age, they are willing to break any and every rule to have a bit of fun. Uniting them is their shared belief that they're not done yet, and together they're going to make the third act of their lives the craziest one yet.
