Allison Janney Reveals the Reason Why She Thinks 'Mom' Was Cancelled

Allison Janney made an appearance on last night’s episode of The Late Late Show, and she revealed her theory about why Mom was cancelled this year.

CBS announced in mid-February that the hit show would not be returning after eight seasons. Allison has brilliantly played the role of Bonnie Plunkett for the entirety of the show. Anna Faris was also on the show, but left before season 8.

“I wish that we’d had at least another year for the writers to have that much time to ramp up to the ending. We sort of found out sooner than we thought we would,” Allison said. “We thought, ‘Surely, they’re gonna want more Mom.’ And they decided not.”

She said there is many reasons why the show was cancelled and added that “most of them” are “probably money” related.

“But I know that Chuck Lorre is writing the final episode and we’re, right now, filming the third-to-last episode,” she continued. “And I’m having a lot of moments where I’m just standing on set, taking it in and looking at all the faces I’ve looked at for eight years.”
