CBS announced on Sunday that it is renewing a series that “has been a lynchpin comedy for us over the last several years,” according to the president of CBS Entertainment, Kelly Kahl.
The show is “Mom,” the popular Thursday night sitcom starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney. With the announcement that the show will return for 2018-2019, it marks a sixth season for “Mom.”
Added Kahl in his statement, “It’s a fearless series that tackles provocative social issues with laughter and grace, and a large, loyal audience has followed. With gifted talents like Anna and Allison leading a great ensemble cast, and a production team headed by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, Nick Bakay and Gemma Baker, this series just keeps getting better.”
“Mom” is currently averaging over 11 million viewers, CBS said.
The series comes to CBS from Warner Bros. Television.
