CBS announced today that Mom will be coming to an end after its current eighth season. The news, which comes two years after the comedy was last renewed through Season 8, is not a complete surprise after co-star Anna Faris left the show at the end of last season.

Created by Chuck Lorre, the half-hour series has been one of the network's top comedies over the course of its over 150-episode run, delivering solid ratings week in and week out. The show follows the lives of a mother and daughter who are both struggling with addiction issues, tackling serious issues like death and alcoholism while mixing those topics with genuine and witty humor.

Look for the series finale of Mom on May 6.
