[ # ] Mom will be saying goodbye in May
February 17th, 2021 under Chuck Lorre

Earlier today, CBS picked up their Monday comedies for another season. Now, they announced that Mom will not be back for a ninth one.

“For the past eight years, we’ve had the great honor to bring these wonderful characters to life, sharing their struggles and triumphs with millions of viewers every week,” said executive producers Lorre, Gemma Baker and Nick Bakay. “From the beginning, we set out to tell stories about recovery from alcoholism and addiction that are rarely portrayed in a network comedy series. Whether it was the emotional reactions of the live audience on tape night inside Stage 20, or discussions at The White House regarding the opioid crisis, or the personal stories we continue to receive on social media, we take great pride in knowing Mom has positively impacted so many lives. We are forever grateful to our brilliant cast and guest stars, wonderful writers, and amazing crew for going on this journey with us.”

A journey that hit a bump in the road when Anna Faris told producers over the summer that she would not be returning to the show this season. I guess with her abandoning ship and the show getting more expensive to produce, CBS felt now was the right time for the show to reach its 12th step.

The series also stars Allison Janney. I am sure the actress, who won an Oscar, will be OK, since she will have more time to make movies.
