Mom to End After Current Season

The CBS comedy family is about to lose its mom. Mom, the long-running Allison Janney-led comedy that's been a staple of their Thursday comedy lineup since 2014, will end its run at the end of its current eighth season. The sitcom is one of the most recent shows on broadcast television to pick up a Primetime Emmy Award in a major category, with two back-to-back wins in 2013 and 2014 for Allison Janney. Its positive critical reception has continued to this point, with three Critics Choice Award nominations for its current season. An episode count for the final season is yet to be announced, but the series finale is set to air on May 8. To-date, Mom has aired 159 episodes. Ahead of the final season, longtime star Anna Faris departed the series, leaving Janney as the only remaining main cast member from the first season. Mimi Kennedy, Jaime Pressly, Beth Hall, William Fichtner and Kristen Johnston also star in the series, which centers on a group of friends in Alcoholics Anonymous. The series has remained a strong performer for CBS throughout its run, averaging a 0.62 this season and rating as the #4 comedy on the network. It is co-created by Chuck Lorre, and currently runs in syndication.
