CBS has renewed its acclaimed and popular comedy series “Mom,” starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney, for a sixth season in 2018-2019.
“Mom” is currently averaging over eleven million viewers and is the third most-watched comedy on broadcast television. The series joins “The Big Bang Theory,” “Young Sheldon,” “SEAL Team” and “S.W.A.T.” which have all been renewed for next season.
The news comes as Netflix’s comedy series “Everything Sucks!” has been cancelled after just one season. Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan created the series which followed two groups of high school misfits who collide in 1996 Oregon.
Fans, the cast and the producers, however, have not been happy with the news and have reacted swiftly, calling for help to keep the series going. Mohan says: “It’s frustrating, but perhaps appropriate, that a show about a bunch of underdogs finds itself an underdog. If you root for those characters, and this show, please let everyone know: #RenewEverythingSucks.”
