No. of Seasons: 8
The ongoing eighth season of Mom is its last. The sitcom’s final season premiered in November 2020 and its series finale is set to air on May 13th. While CBS didn’t explain why it canceled the show, star Allison Janney has a theory why the network pulled the plug on the series.
“I’m sad,” Janney said during an appearance in The Late Late Show last March. “I wish 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 hear. We thought, ‘Surely they’re going to want more Mom,’ and they decided not. There are so many reasons behind it — most of them probably money.”
Created by Chuck Lorre, Mom follows dysfunctional daughter/mother duo Christy (Anna Faris) and Bonnie Plunkett (Janney) who attempt to pull their lives and their relationship together by trying to stay sober and attending Alcoholics Anonymous.
