Is this the final season for the fan favorite CBS series Mike & Molly?
That is the word according to series regular Rhondi Reed who plays Mike’s mother on the veteran sitcom. She posted a lengthy message to her fans via her Facebook page about the show’s future.
Reed said, “Before you hear it elsewhere (and some already have) this is the Final and 6th Season of MIKE & MOLLY on CBS.” According to her, not only will this be the final season of the series, but it will be a shortened season with only 13-episodes instead of the previously announced 22-episodes.
It seems that there were attempts to find another home for the series according to Reed, “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.”
Taping of the final season according to Reed will wrap on January 27th, 2016 with no set date for the episodes to premiere.
So far there has been no comment from CBS. Stay tuned as this story develops…
