The long-running comedy will be back this fall.
April 8, 2018
CBS announced today that Mom has been picked up for a sixth season. The Chuck Lorre-created comedy has been one of the network's top comedies over the course of its run, and at over 100 episodes still garners solid ratings week in and week out.
Following the lives of a mother and daughter who are both struggling with addiction issues, the series stands apart from many other comedies on television thanks to its penchant for tackling serious topics like death and alcoholism and mixing those topics with genuine and witty humor.
Mom's renewal today ensures that all three of Lorre's comedies remain on the CBS schedule for the 2018-2019 season. Look for a return this fall.

Kids aren't dead. Daughter moved away on her own. (Fine with me) Son is shared custody w/ ex and his new wife. He still has a room in the apartment though Bonnie uses it a lot since it is downstairs. I assume we are supposed to assume that the days we see on screen are "Dad's Days" since obviously no show shows fictional characters 24/7.
Anyone else make that assumption or have an explanation that perhaps I missed?

While I still found the show funny, the change in cast and tone lost me. I guess I missed the recovery step where you dump your children and pretend they don't exist.

I love this show. It has surpassed Big Bang as my favorite show. Some of the cast changes have been a little jarring, but I still have always loved it. William Fichtner is a fantastic addition and more than makes up for the loss of the work place characters.
That said, I can understand how people who have personal experience with alcohol/ substance abuse would want the show to be more realistic even though it is a comedy. As a teacher, it drives me nuts when shows are so far away from reality when they portray classrooms, and that is certainly now where near as serious an issue.
As for the character of Bonnie, it would not be at all realistic to me if she had a personality transplant - and no where near as funny. I'm thrilled for this renewal!

I agree with you Sherry. Violet was so annoying. But I'm kind of curious about Roscoe. I like this show and am glad it got renewed. I really like Adam and Bonnie together.

The problem with recovering alcoholics is they all get on a high horse thinking they have the right to dictate to others what "recovery" means. Watching a SITCOM and expecting it to hold true to the depressing, self-absorbed, religious, enabling, codependent, characters which actually make up AA is so misguided in so many ways. I wouldn't know where to begin. It's tv.. and it's TRYING to be funny.

Sure the 12 step program is good. But it can't cure selfishness. which the one character has She's a example of her type of addict. Not all succeed or turn good. so mom remains popular because of the flawed woman.

Excellent show! Glad it's been renewed.....

Andrew. I agree with you. I quit watching for those reasons.

To each their own, but I love this show. To me the kids were annoying! I like the new format.
