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 series 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.

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

I have been faithfully watching this show ever since Season 1. I’m a recovering alcoholic myself of over 22 years which is why I originally tuned in. But frankly I was hoping to see the characters grow in their recovery. The only realistic recovering person doing that is Marjorie. I have so grown weary of Bonnie as she remains so selfish and self-absorbed, always trying to look at the angle of what she can get out of something and that is the exact opposite of what 12 step recovery is supposed to do. Sadly, when they share at meetings, they usually talk about silly things that never get talked about in meetings in reality and they make a mockery of it which had really started to irritate me. I’ve questioned whether I want to keep watching because I really don’t find the show that funny anymore. I’ve hardly laughed this season at all and was seriously hoping most of the charcacters would show growth, especially in the sobriety and recovery sense. I’m not sure why the kids aren’t around anymore either but their interactions used to be some of the funniest moments. Regardless, if Bonnie acts the same next season where she keeps looking for the angle in everything to get something for nothing, in other words selfish, I’m done. That is not recovery, that is a dry drunk and it’s painful to watch season after season. There are so many things they could focus on in recovery that they haven’t yet that involve them being funny but still growing...

The 1st 3 seasons were nice, but now the kids are gone, baxter is gone, Christy her job in the restaurant is gone and so are all the characters who worked there. Now, every episode is almost the same. AA meetings and annoying characters like that dumbass Wendy... They should have kept the original concept, because that was funny.

"....mixing those topics with genuine and witty humor." -- really? Some 1 funny line in 30 minutes counts as "mixing"? I will say season 5 has been much lighter than seasons 2-4. I just don't think there's a great deal of humor in the show. Love the cast... and the settings work.. they just aren't humorous most of the time. The kids have completely disappeared... not even mentioned any longer... Kind of think they need to rename this to "Estrogen Anonymous" or just "Life Anonymous".
