The Moodys is an American comedy show which is based on an Australian show with a similar name ( A Moody Christmas). The first season came out on December 19th, 2019 on Fox. The series was created by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher and Tad Quill. They are also the writers of the show. Fisher and Greenberg were the directors of the first season. The first season had six episodes in total, where each episode had a span of half an hour. The show became more popular than expected and it was renewed for a second season.
What’s it about?
The Moodys is generally a comedy series based on a holiday event. It shows a married couple coming back together with their three children in Chicago. The family is reunited just in time for the Christmas season. The show has a very strong cast and can truly make the audience laugh through its depiction of the dysfunctional family. The three siblings are very different from each other. The eldest one is portrayed as “a disappointment” who still lives with his family, the middle-child being a high achiever and the youngest one is sort of self-destructive. The holiday season brings out secrets, resentment as well as love in The Moodys. The dynamics between the parents and their children, as they each manage their difficulties, is very interesting to watch. This is something that should be on everyone’s watchlist. It is a unique show expressing boldness and unconventionality.
When is the release date?
There is no official news yet. But it is confirmed that season 2 will happen and the Moody family will return to entertain us. The new season will probably not have the familiar holiday theme of season 1. It may also have more than six episodes. The series might come out in late 2020 or early 2021.
