The new comedy adds nine episodes to its debut outing.
October 19, 2018
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.
