Every week, the cast and crew of Fox’s The Mick — the new comedy series that follows Kaitlin Olson‘s reckless Mackenzie, a.k.a. “Mickey,” who’s tasked with caring for her on-the-lam sister’s three children — is taking EW behind the scenes of the latest episode. This week, star Sofia Black-D’Elia dishes on the 13th episode, “The Bully,” where her character, Sabrina, fights back after getting bullied.
I was thrilled about this episode because I feel like this is a side of Sabrina that we haven’t seen yet. And I was really excited to do it.
My favorite part of filming it was the scene that Kaitlin and I have in my bedroom, which is a traditional pep talk flipped on its head where she’s reminding me of my inner bitch. I just had more fun filming that scene than I think I have the whole season of this show. It felt different.
This whole episode felt different, for me, because we’ve always seen Sabrina as kind of the cooler-than-thou bitch and what’s underneath all of those girls is where the humor in this episode comes from. So that scene, in particular, was really a side of her we haven’t seen. She’s kind of completely bottomed out and inconsolable. But the episode in general was really a chance for me to toy with aspects of this character that we haven’t gotten to yet. I much prefer the other side of Sabrina than the kind of angry girl that you see all the time.
I don’t think Sabrina’s growing up as much as she’s being forced to peel back the layers of her ugly personality, which I guess is a form of growing up? In that sense, I think that Mickey and Sabrina can both bring out the worst and the best in each other — depending on what your definition of what “the best” is.

When it seems as though Chip is getting scammed by a girl he met online, Mickey tries to teach him how to be a “wolf” vs. a “sheep.” Meanwhile, Sabrina is scared that her boyfriend is beginning to mirror Jimmy’s ways and she plans an intervention.

Mickey’s nieces and nephews will have to put up with their wild aunt for a little longer: Fox just renewed The Mick — starring It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson as the title character — for a second season, the network announced Tuesday. This is Fox’s first freshman series to get a renewal this year.
The comedy, created by John and Dave Chernin (also Sunny alums), follows the disheveled Mickey as she tries to take care of her wealthy sister’s spoiled kids. “Ultimately, we want this to be a show about the least-equipped parent being forced to raise the most challenging children imaginable,” the Chernin brothers previously told EW.
“From the earliest stages of development, all of us at Fox had enormous faith in The Mick, and it hasn’t disappointed,” David Madden, Fox’s president of entertainment, said in a statement. “Kaitlin is a fearless comedic force, and the rest of the cast has just proven to be phenomenal. John and Dave Chernin have a very clear vision of what this show is, and they execute on that vision each week to perfection. We really couldn’t be happier with The Mick, and we’re so thrilled to renew the series for a second season.”
Fox teased The Mick‘s fate soon after the show premiered this past January when they ordered four extra episodes, expanding the first season’s run to 17 episodes total. The show currently airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
