More Mom more fun!
CBS has renewed Mom for two more seasons, which means that the Chuck Lorre-created comedy will run through at least Season Eight.
“We’re exceptionally proud to have Mom on our air; a high-quality, signature comedy with characters viewers love, that also brings strength and stability to our lineup,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “Under Chuck Lorre’s extraordinary leadership and with his outstanding writing and production team, we look forward to having Mom on CBS for many years to come.”
Deadline reports that the series’ stars, Anna Faris and Allison Janney, have both inked new two-year contracts with Warner Bros. The two star as daughter/mother duo Christy and Bonnie Plunkett, who, after having been estranged for years, attempt to pull their lives and their relationship together. The series also stars Mimi Kennedy, Jaime Pressly, Beth Hall and William Fichtner.
“We’re fortunate to have the gifted talents of Anna and Allison, with their wit, intelligence and incomparable comic skill, heading up such a brilliant cast on this noteworthy series,” added Thom Sherman, senior EVP of programming at CBS Entertainment.
Mom airs Thursdays on CBS.
