Mom is ending in May after eight seasons

  • Months after Anna Faris' exit, CBS announced that the current eighth season will be the last for the Chuck Lorre comedy starring Allison Janney. The series finale is scheduled for May 6. This is the last season in a two-year pickup the multicamera comedy received in 2019. Mom is still a strong ratings performer, ranking as CBS' No. 4 comedy behind The Neighborhood and Lorre’s Young Sheldon and Bob Hearts Abishola. “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 Chuck Lorre, Gemma Baker and Nick Bakay in a joint statement. “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.” CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl added: "Since its premiere, Mom has touched people’s lives by sensitively tackling weighty yet relatable topics, with a perfect, deft touch. Mom redefined what a comedy can be, and we are proud to have been the network home to this wonderful series. We are deeply grateful to Chuck Lorre and his tremendously creative production team, helmed by Gemma Baker and Nick Bakay, and the amazingly talented cast, led by the phenomenal Allison Janney.”
