CBS announced a two-season renewal for Mom today - the first of its kind for the comedy - that will see it on the air through Season 8. The Chuck Lorre-created series has been one of the network's top comedies over the course of its run, and at over 120 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.

Look for Season 7 of Mom to premiere this fall as part of the 2019-2020 TV season, with Season 8 similarly following in the fall of 2020.
