CBS Cancels ‘Mike & Molly’ After Six Seasons
Rondi Reed—who plays Mike’s mother Peggy on the show—wrote on Facebook: “[T]his is the final and sixth season of Mike & Molly on CBS…. We are done taping as of January 27th. Other venues were explored by [Warner Bros. TV] and [Chuck Lorre’s] Bonanza Productions after CBS announced their intentions, but did not turn up a future for our show (sic).”
During her time on the show Melissa has seen her film career go from strength-to-strength, with an Oscar nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Bridesmaids in 2011.
Earlier this week she also received her first ever Golden Globes nomination for her role in the movie Spy and will compete against Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer, Dame Maggie Smith and Lily Tomlin for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture—Comedy or Musical.
She also recently launched her own fashion collection, the Melissa McCarthy Seven7 line.
