It looks like we’ll be saying goodbye to ‘Mike and Molly.’ While CBS has not yet announced that their show, which has been a hit for six seasons, is ending, Rondi Reed took to Facebook to share a very telling message.
Melissa McCarthy may be available for that Gilmore Girls revival after all. On Dec 9, Rondi Reed, aka Mike’s mother Peggy, posted a long message on her Facebook page where she admitted that the show will be done taping on January 27. She added that yes, “this is the final” season — and that it will not be a full 22 episodes as planned.
“Before you hear it elsewhere (and some already have) this is the Final and 6th Season of MIKE & MOLLY on CBS,” Rondi, 63, wrote on her Facebook page.” It is also a shortened season (13 episodes) after the announced full renewal of 22 episodes back in March by the network. We are done taping as of January 27th 2016 and I am not sure exactly when/if the episodes will all be aired.”
Naturally, she knew people would have questions as to why, but she cleared that up as well.
“The network has it’s reasons, and I will not get into a debate, discussion, or campaign to get them to change their minds. Other venues were explored by WB and Bonanza Productions (Chuck Lorre) after CBS announced their intentions, but did not turn up a future for our show,” she wrote. “It is a fact and we have known for a few weeks. I remain extremely grateful to have been a part of this and to have worked with a fabulous bunch of folks over the years. I have learned a lot about many things, including the Business we call Show. Also grateful for all the fans and for the personal support I have received over the (almost) 6 seasons. Stewart Talent has guided me every step of the way on this journey and for that I am also forever grateful.”
CBS did not respond to HollywoodLife.com‘s request for comment. Are you sad to see the show go?
