CBS' "Mike and Molly," a staple on the network for the past several seasons, will air its final episodes during the upcoming network season.
The program, starring Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell, has aired on the network for the past six seasons. The show was created by Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, and had very respectable ratings during its run, which will soon end, according to The Wrap.
On Sunday, actress Rondi Reed, who plays Peggy on the program, made the announcement via Facebook, saying, Before you hear it elsewhere (and some already have) this is the Final and 6th Season of MIKE & MOLLY on CBS. 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.
Gardell, who plays Mike on the show, also confirmed the news on Twitter, saying, Mike and Molly returns Jan 6, it will be our last episodes. There are 13 of them. Thank you everyone who supported us. 🙏🙏❤️❤️
As for the reason behind the cancellation and a future for the show, Reed doesn't sound too optimistic, saying, 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. 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.
Beyond its success on air, the program was largely responsible for making co-star Melissa McCarthy a household name. Since the show debuted, she has launched a successful comedy movie career, and has hosted "Saturday Night Live." What CBS will air in its spot in the future is not known.
