Deadline Hollywood reports:
CBS’ praised Mom — the network’s longest running comedy series on the air — will end its run after the current eighth season. Mom‘s series finale has been set for May 6 in its Thursday 9 PM time period.
This is the last season of Mom’s two-year pickup which the Chuck Lorre-produced multi-camera comedy received in 2019. Also coming up at the end of this season was the current contract for star Allison Janney who became the series’ sole lead after the exit of Anna Faris last summer.
The series garnered two Emmy wins and five Emmy nominations as well as a Golden Globe nomination for Janney. Mom also has been a rare sitcom that tackles important issues.
