Fox renews “The Moodys” for Second Season!

The Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins comedy “The Moodys” is getting a second season at Fox. The series, which follows a tight-knit but dysfunctional family, is an adaptation of Australian series “A Moody Christmas” from The Jungleboys Entertainment and Australian Broadcasting Corporation. CBS Television Studios is the studio behind the show.

“The Moodys” debuted as a six-episode holiday event series. Fox’s president of entertainment Michael Thorn had indicated last summer that if the series proved successful, the network might bring it back for another Christmas run.

“With ‘The Moodys,’ we set out to brand the holidays in the only way FOX can bold and unconventional. What we ended up with was a special show and a family everyone at the network fell in love with,” said Thorn. “Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill perfectly captured the hysterics of Christmas, with sharp banter and real moments of family togetherness brought to life by Denis Leary, Elizabeth Perkins and the rest of the incredible cast. Eric and Kim Tannenbaum and CBS Television Studios have been great partners on this series; and, simply put, we’re looking forward to The Moodys’ future adventures.”

Leary and Perkins star as the patriarch and matriarch of the family, with three grown children played by Francois Arnaud, Chelsea Frei and Jay Baruchel. María Gabriela de Faría, Josh Segarra, Kevin Bigley and Gerry Dee are also featured on the series.

“The Moodys” is written and exec produced by Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill. Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, Trent O’Donnell, Phil Lloyd and Jason Burrows are executive producers on the series, alongside Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins.

Moodys digs into family dysfunction for Xmas

Elizabeth Perkins stars in the limited series "The Moodys."

The Moodys | Wednesday, Dec. 4, 9 p.m., Fox

Welcoming your adult children home for the holidays sounds dreamy for longtime Chicago married couple Sean (Denis Leary) and Ann Moody (Elizabeth Perkins). Then they start showing up. Dan Moody (Francois Arnaud), the baby of the family, shows up unaccompanied by his girlfriend. Bridget Moody (Chelsea Frei) shows up without a suitcase in hand after fighting with her husband. Eldest child Sean Jr. (Jay Baruchel) never left home, and that’s becoming a drag for his parents. Throw in a cousin, a thwarted romance or two and some medical surprises, and you have an imperfect Christmas — the only kind this family seems capable of having.

Elizabeth Perkins, who previously played Jackie O’Neill on HBO’s “Sharp Objects,” spoke to The Post from LA, where she was besieged by allergies.

When we last saw you, you played the woman who knew the town’s dark secrets on “Sharp Objects.” Did you feel you needed a complete change of pace when you read the script for “The Moodys?”

I so prefer doing comedy in general because it’s just easier to go to work. I just finished something called “Truth Be Told” with Octavia Spencer for Apple TV. That was a strong drama that we filmed for six months. Then when I got “The Moodys,” I was really ready. When I found it would be working with Denis Leary, it was really perfect. We’re from the same part of Massachusetts, so there’s a great through line. We wanted to swear all the time.

Are you from a large family?

I have two sisters. My mother married a widower with eight children. Who does that? There were 11 of us at one point.
