CBS Announces 'Mom' Will End With Season 8

CBS’s Mom will end with season eight, the network announced today (February 17).

The show, which starred Anna Faris and Alison Janney, as the mother and daughter duo who face their battles with addiction among a support group, will end on May 6.

“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 shared in a statement via Variety.

“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.”

Jaime Pressly, Mimi Kennedy, Beth Hall, Kristen Johnston and William Fichtner also starred in the sitcom, and it earned Allison two Emmy wins.

Earlier this week, Allison opened up about what it felt like without Anna on the set, after she left the show after season seven.
