CBS announced today that Bob Hearts Abishola will be coming to an end with its upcoming fifth season. The news arrives three months before the comedy returns for its now-final run, which will air between February and May 2024.

"We are so proud to call Bob Hearts Abishola a CBS comedy as it helped establish a new generation of programming at the Network," said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. "This series expertly showcased a family love story and workplace comedy about the immigrant experience with heartfelt humor and emotion while also authentically portraying Nigerian culture. It's a testament to the incomparable Chuck Lorre, the amazing creative team led by Al Higgins, Gina Yashere and Matt Ross, and the talents of Billy Gardell, Folake Olowofoyeku and the entire cast for making this show and its characters come to life and resonate with viewers. We plan to celebrate it this spring and give fans the most amazing episodes to remember it by."

The half-hour series follows a middle-aged man from Detroit who, after a heart attack lands him in the hospital, unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, who is a Nigerian immigrant. Since its premiere in 2019, it has been a consistently strong performer for the network and one of the most-watched comedies on television.

Season 5 of Bob Hearts Abishola premieres on Monday, February 12 for a 13-episode final run that will conclude on May 13.
