A CBS comedy series just received a big vote of confidence from the network, which announced a two-season renewal today for “Mom.”
Additionally, stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney reached new agreements with Warner Bros. Television to return for both seasons.
“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 CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl. “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.”
CBS noted that the series is currently averaging more than 10 million viewers and is the third most-watched comedy on broadcast behind CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” and “Young Sheldon.”
The series premiered on Mondays in fall 2013 and moved to Thursdays at the start of season two. Mimi Kennedy, Jaime Pressly, Beth Hall and William Fichtner also star.
Chuck Lorre, Nick Bakay, Gemma Baker and Warren Bell are executive producers for Chuck Lorre Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series was created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker.
“Mom” joins the previously renewed freshman hits “FBI,” “God Friended Me,” “Magnum P.I.” and “The Neighborhood” along with the final season of “Criminal Minds” on CBS’s lineup for 2019-2020.
