‘Mike And Molly’ To Be Canceled
According to star Rondi Reed, she posted on her Facebook that the show would be canceled after the sixth season is finshed being aired in 2016. Her official statement reads:
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. 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. 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.
The news comes after the fact that actress Melissa McCarthy had reached the final year of her contract with the sitcom. The last season will be a shortened one as stated by Reed with 13 episodes ready to be shown on Jan. 6 with the fate of the other episodes unknown due to the short seven weeks it will be shown on during the Wednesday night block with 2 Broke Girls.
