CBS' 'Mom' to End After 8 Seasons

CBS has today announced that the current eighth season of its original comedy series Mom will be its last. The series finale of the comedy has now been slated for Thursday, May 6 at 9/8c.

The comedy stars Allison Janney, Jaime Pressly, Mimi Kennedy, Beth Hall, Kristen Johnston and William Fichtner.

Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker created the comedy. They executive produce with Nick Bakay and Warren Bell. Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions produce.

"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 Lorre, Baker and 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."

"Since its premiere, Mom has touched people's lives by sensitively tackling weighty yet relatable topics, with a perfect, deft touch," added Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. "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."
