The Moodys, a family comedy series, is most likely to say goodbye to the audience after the season 2 finale episode on Fox on June 20, 2021. Though Fox is yet to make an official announcement, it is pretty clear that the network will not be bringing back season 3 of the show. This was evident when, after season 2, episode 5 of the show, Fox quietly pulled it from the schedule. The series could not hold the attention of its viewers and ranked among the lowest Fox series.
The Moodys is written by Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg, and Tad Quill. The producer of the show is Irene Litinsky and is co-produced by BCS Television Studios and Fox Entertainment. Lyle Workman has given the music of The Moodys.
The series is based on an Australian series, “The Moodys Christmas,” by Trent O’Donnell and Phil Lloyd. The Moodys, season 1 episode 1 was premiered on December 4, 2019. Season 2 of the series was aired on April 1, 2021. The Moodys Season 1 is currently available on Amazon Prime Video.
The Plot of The Moodys.
The Moodys started as a holiday event comedy with Dan Moody, played by François Arnaud, returning home to Chicago to spend time with his family. He is accompanied by his present girlfriend Cora, played by María Gabriela de Faría. His family is quite a lovable one, but it is not without its shortcomings and flaws.
In the series, Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins play the roles of a bickering married couple, Sean Moody Sr. and Ann Moody, who are always at their wits’ ends. Sean Mood Jr., played by Jay Baruchel, Bridget Moody, played by Chelsea Fry, and Dan Moody, is the couple’s three grown-up children who reunite to celebrate Christmas. Sean Jr. is the oldest of the three siblings and is a “screw up,” and he still lives with his parents. Bridget is the middle sister and is an “overachiever.” Dan, the youngest of the siblings, is the “creative one.”
As the series progresses, the viewers get to know the family members and watch the highs and lows of their relationship as well. The show’s cast also includes Josh Segarra as Marco, Linda Goranson as Mary, Kevin Bigley as Monty, and Ulka Simon as Mohanty.
